Elijah-Aaron Rowan... formally known as Aaron Benwell.
I have studied all sorts of things, from Art and Design at college and then Biology and Sociology, to Anthropology and Human Evolution in Oxford at University. During all this time I studied Egyptology at night time after work and days off from college and university. I have never however studied writing, yet this is what I have found my way to.
While currently writing my Novel I have been self publishing short horrors on Kindle as well as making use of Amazon's Create Space, to pull these stories into one collection. This Collection has been an evolving piece as I learnt about writing, promotion and editing. (My novel waits patiently on my computer as I chip away at it and send it back and forth to my editor.)
I personally love reading horrors as well as short stories so they have been fantastic fun to write. I think short's are harder than novels because they always need to be surprising and end with a breathtaking twist. A twist is hard to gain in such a short amount of words because you have to build the characters personalities and stories quickly and manage to make their actions comfortable and then suddenly so outlandish for it to be shocking. I hope I've managed this with my own works.
