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 don't always post comments, but when I do, it's because you're awesome. I kept rereading your books for research purposes since I'm not that good in writing. But I was so hooked in the story that I ended up finishing the whole story like I didn't know what will happen next. I love your characters especially Vincent.

@Mary347 yes. Due to the publisher/amazon's policy, no other copy can exist and be distributed. If you want to read a touch of poison, you can support Aaron by buying it on the amazon kindle store.

Your books are absolutely amazing. I truly have not come across books that I have been so utterly happy with. The personalities of all your characters are wonderfully refreshing. The wit on your main characters is beautiful. I find myself laughing and thinking 'My god where does this come from! He's brilliant!' (please don't let your head swell too much haha) Anyways, I want to thank you for sharing the stories from that wonderful mind of yours.

Hi! Just wondering, has A Touch of Poison been taken down from Wattpad because it's available somewhere else (amazon)?

@16Astrid I got to hear Brandon Sanderson talk at a writer's convention I was at. Such a cool guy. One of my good friends actually got to play MTG against him later that week, which is awesome beyond words.

And trust me, (I say that a lot) there is no such thing as 'better than'. There is only different. And 'different' can be appreciated by people who have something in common with you. I'm not the best storyteller in the world, but the people who like my stuff are the people who really 'get' me, you know? Like, everything I write is kind of a "Here's something cool about being a human being" sort of thing, and when people connect with that and go "Yeah, I totally agree" in the comment section, I smile. Really, communication is what this whole 'writing' thing is all about.

And trust me (yet again)... my 'little' brother isn't someone I'd ever consider bossing around. I mean, I have tattoos, and can pass as a biker when I really want to, but there are some lines even I won't cross. :)

White Mare is going to have to wait until Revenant is finished, because I realized that having too many in-progress works was beginning to stress me out. But yeah, it'll happen eventually. I mean, I can't just leave the story like *this*, can I? :)

@16Astrid Well, Alaska is a big place, but going on an Alaskan cruise is on my bucket list. Be careful what you wish for...  ;)

And you do Nano! Zomg, I heart Nanowrimo so much! The first draft of Two Cats was actually the result of Nano. Good times.

You should post your Nano stuff up on here sometime. :)

And trust me, your theory is wrong. My brother is soooo not Cyrus. He's more of a heavily-tattooed Theo, actually.
