Welcome to Author Aaron T. Knight
Being an American of Scandinavian descent probably explains why I spent the first seventeen years of my life in North Dakota. To survive seventeen winters in the Dakotas I acquired a sense of humor. Only one way was open to me to escape. Enlisting in the military at seventeen. My mother reluctantly signed the papers letting me go. Three years of my four year enlistment were spent in New York City which was a godsend.Discharged I stayed in New York and attended NYU in the evenings while I worked. I graduated and worked in the finance field for twenty years in New York. My sense of humor was honed to a fine edge from living very close to my fellow New Yorkers every day.
Writing fiction allows me to be humorous. My novels are based on a fantasy premise as a background for satirical humor. My first self published novel was Fred a robot with a screw loose having been sabotaged by the resentful inventor of its intelligence. At large in Manhattan Fred takes his pursuers on a merry chase around the city. Being my first effort I was encouraged when a Barnes and Noble Small Publishing buyer liked the book. They helped set me up with Ingram so they could buy books. Many signings and no money to promote my book later life went on and so did I.You may peruse my collection of comedies on Amazon which were self published on Create Space with the exception of Fred.
