Meet Aaron

If it's the last copy of a book I want and you try to take it... I will punch you.

Thanks for stopping by!

I read, write, review, edit, eat, sleep, and breathe YA. I love stories. Love 'em. When I'm not doing story stuff, I'm probably doing laundry or saying things to my kids like, "Stop biting him," "Bite him back," and, "Go get the band-aids."

I'm a single dad and I have my kiddos 24/7. No breaks. They're awesome kids, though, so I'm a lucky guy. My daughter has an entire wall full of Harry Potter and is a certified nerd. My two sons are only half-nerds, so keep them in your prayers.  

I listen to Ellie Goulding every day of my life without fail. I work out every day because deep down in this little heart of mine I wish I was AH-NOLD. 

Confession: I only drink one cup of coffee first thing in the morning, and no more. I'm sorry. I'm a Chipotle addict (no joke!) and my goal in life is to get one of those "Burritos For Life" cards that they give celebrities.

If you want to know anything else about me, please feel free to ask!


  1. Hi Aaron,

    I have an ARC I'd love to send you -- a hilarious first novel called Denton Little's Deathdate. Can you let me know where to send it?
