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.

There has to be a reason for it though, doesn't there?

Oh, you.

Leave poor Vincent alone. His education in all things concerning literature was both self-taught, and dependent upon what other people wrote. Not *his* fault, surely.

Nor mine, obviously. I mean, if it were me writing, *I'd* spot an grammar error like that one...

Words fail to express the way I feel about your characters and the way you write them, I must fall back on the pitifully inadequate saying of "I love them". Vincent seems so real, if a little crazy. It is deserved though if he is, really he seems incredibly well adjusted for someone who has been through the ordeal he has.  I cannot wait to see where this new information takes him. I must say that the perpetrator seems rather repentant, or it could be an awesome front. I love the way Vincent reacts to things, like the last time he enters the exercise room, that was an amazing bit of confoundation going on there. All in all, I just want to say thank you so much!! I eagerly await the next story.
Aaaaahahahaa! At last!

Yes, at long last, Ten Arrows is finally done! Finished! Fait-accompli! I shall drain several pitchers of beer in celebration tonight, I kid you not.

And then, once I'm done and the subsequent hangover gets tired of punching me in the skull, I shall begin book #4. Soon-ish. I promise. :)
