BRoP: When and why did you begin writing?
Aaron: I started writing short stories in April or May or something of 2011. It all began with a dream. Mine are usually very vivid, and disturbing. This one in particular was about a wild girl, like, wilderness wild, not party wild, who reverted back to her feral nature after her husband became abusive. I wrote it as my first short, Eudora.
BRoP: When did you first consider yourself a professional writer?
Aaron: I first considered my self a professional when I got my first quarterly check, a rockin’ 9 bucks, but it was for something I created, and that’s important.
BRoP: What genre do you write?
Aaron: I write in many genres. Be it horror, sci fi, fantasy, I always just let the story itself. 3 of my four published novels are hard science fiction.
BRoP: What is your favorite theme/genre to write about?
Aaron: I prefer sci fi, not because I’m more interested in it than any other genre, but because it just kind of chose me. I don’t much care for current sci fi books, but there are a lot of really good sci fi movies out there. So, I write my stories in those same veins, lots of action, lots of twists, and some political upheaval keeps the readers engrossed.
BRoP: If you couldn’t be an author, what would your ideal career be?
Aaron: Man in Black
BRoP: What format is your book available in (print, e-book, audio book, etc.)?
Aaron: I think Epub and PDF, but I convert it to Mobi and whatever else
