About

Aaron Kite is a writer/artist who likes putting slashes between occupations and who very rarely refers to himself in the third person. He was born on the exact same day that São Paulo Metro was inaugurated in Brazil, which the authorities claim is pure coincidence.

He has been interviewed by Science Magazine, the Calgary Herald, National Geographic, and this shady fellow named ‘Jimmy’ who kept pointedly asking him about his success as a writer with questions like “Got any spare change?” and “C’mon, really, do ya? I gotta catch a bus.”

Aaron was one of the founding members of the amateur writing group “Starting Write Now”, as well as countless side-projects which he’d mention by name if the government would finally get around to granting him immunity. He lives in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, which really ought to have another sub-section to it, because another comma there would look really slick.

At present he has three finished novels – “Two Cats”, and the sequel “Jade Mouse”, as well as the standalone (but with sequels percolating in his brain) novel "A Touch of Poison". He’s currently in the middle of writing the novels, “Ten Arrows” and "Revenant", as well as about eleven or so other books that are all in varying states of doneness. When writing, he likes to disable his spell-checker and make up words, as is illustrated by the use of ‘doneness’ above.

He's allergic to cats, and thus he tries to arrange it so he's living with one whenever possible, probably just to prove a point of some sort.

I was wondering if you ever published 'A Touch of Poison'? just let me know :) if you never did I would be so disappointed because even though it's still in my library it's a book that I honestly wouldn't mind paying for :) THAT'S how amazing it is!

I couldn't stop reading Two Cats!! It started off as a short break between studying for exams and then I spent the whole night reading the whole story in one go... there's nothing better than a sarcastic thief who finds himself in a serious pickle... I wish I could fix the pickle I'm in now with my finals....

@mkolcheva Honestly, I'd laugh harder at 'Alphonse' than I would at 'Pierre'. And sometimes we just have to acknowledge the fact that every now and then, perfectly well adjusted folks decide to go with very uncharacteristically strange names for their children.

Like "Brock". Or "Maynard".

...both of which have stunning representatives, ala Lesnar and Keenan. :)

I was a little in love with Vincent, but now tenareau has a bit of my heart, too. Please consider publishing paper copies of the series....I want them all.

@mkolcheva Alaric is visigothic, originally German, but European migration is a thing.

Plus, there was just no way I was gonna name this guy 'Pierre'. I like oddball names much more than typical ones.

That, and I wanted him to be known as 'Al' by people he knows, because I know that'd drive this particular character crazy. ;-)

About a quarter of the stuff about fighting, guns, explosives, etc is first-hand knowledge. All the rest of it is google, and things I've learned/read.

Of course, I'm not going to reveal which facts are googled and which aren't, cuz I've gotta have *some* secrets. But no, I'm not a hit-man. If that's what you're asking. ;-)
