Aaron Safronoff was born and raised in Michigan where he wrote his first novella, Evening Breezes. In his early twenties, he moved to California to attend culinary school. He fell in love with the Bay Area and has never considered leaving, although he did eventually leave the school.

During his ten years in the games industry, he worked at various levels and for several disciplines including quality assurance, production, and design. All the while he was writing a novel, short stories, plays, and poetry. His career in design introduced him to amazingly intelligent, fun, and creative people, many of whom he considers family today.

Safronoff self-published, Spire, in 2011, and won the Science Fiction Discovery Award for the same in the summer

Aaron Safronoff, Spire

“I'm not an Elder, she continued, I'm merely a vestige of an old and forgotten way of life...tolerated because I'm quiet, useful because I know things no one else does.”
Aaron Safronoff, Beneath the Fall

“Despite the urgency so many feel to capture a moment, sometimes the moment captures them and never lets them go.”
