You’ve apparently stumbled across (or, less likely, deliberately clicked on) the Website for J. Aaron Parish. I am many things — teacher, writer, husband, father. This site is largely concerned with my writing.
What do I write? That one’s simple enough: horror and fantasy. I’ve written about parasitic gnomes, man-eating darkness, fairies, and world-ruling cars.
Why do I write? Now that’s a trickier question. There is certainly something about seeing my name on a table of contents or a byline. The main reason is simply because I can. Not to be too melodramatic, but you could say that I must. It’s a drive for any sort of artistic endeavor. Birds fly. Ants ruin your picnic. Roaches and politicians scurry away from light. Writers write.
