Hi, I'm Aaron
« on: January 03, 2009, 08:44:16 PM »
Hello, all.  My name's Aaron.

I write SF and Fantasy, mostly, though my next novel is going to be more Literary Fiction-ish.  I've sold a raft of short stories, though only one has as yet worked its way into the light of day and reached paper.  I also do illustration, which has been nice for my recent sales, which I've also provided paintings for.

Other than that, I'm married to an Astrophysicist, and we've got a bouncing nine-month-old daughter.  I am currently freelancing as an artist, and also design and develop games and puzzles professionally.

Hi, Welcome aboard, Aaron!  I already gave you karma for another post.  Sorry, I'm a little abckwards today ( ;D) It sounds like you have a really cool job.  I professionally am a Recreation Therapist and I used to have a lot of fun, when I worked in the health care sector, designing adaptive and educational games for both the disabled and able bodied.  Both my husband and I are artists too, but he has a degree in it.  I orginally wanted to illustrate my novel, substituting random pages of text with comic book pages in various places in the story, but hubby didn't like my illustrations and I didn't like his.  I won cause I wrote the darn thing, but decided to leave the illustrations out  out of respect . Sorry to prattle on.  :blah: :blah: Good to "meet" you! :p2: :p2: :p2: :bear: :welcome: ;D :koolaid:
