Bex Aaron is too old to be concerned with convention. Thus, she's going to give you some random facts about herself, and about her books, in the hopes that it will make you smile...even if just for a moment.
Bex Aaron's legal name is Rebecca, and you may also call her that if you wish. Just never call her Becky. She loathes Becky.
She lives in Texas, and works as a legal secretary. It's a pretty swell job. She's pretty happy.
She is divorced, and she's pretty happy about that too.
She loves the color purple, both the actual color and the novel and movie of the same name.
She would like to buy the world a Coke.
She originally wrote the Independence Day series when she was 14 years old, back in 1997. Over time, she thought of ways she could improve on the original effort and the current incarnation made its debut as webfiction on July 4, 2009.
She took a year to write the first two books and three years to write the third. A lot of people got angry with her about this, and she does apologize.
Independence Day is a story about a small town, full of hard working, god fearing people...and one of them happens to be a murderer. It's expected to run a series of five books, and book three, Innocent, is coming August 31, 2014.

- Breakfast Anytime
on May 20, 2011
This collection of poems runs the gamut from passion between a couple, a parent grieving their child growing up too fast, scorned lovers and more. My favorites included the title poem "Breakfast Anytime", an acrostic which tells an interesting story; "Amazement", a sweet poem told from an ill child's perspective, and "The Cure for a Broken Heart", a cute piece about a young woman seeking a doctor's advice on how to get past a break up.
I recommend this collection for poetry enthusiasts, as well as those that enjoy lyrical imagery. Very well done.
- The Dark Secret
on June 01, 2011
I found this to be a very intriguing short story. The interactions between the characters do well to advance the plot and highlight the dark secrets between them. The only thing I did not like was that it was so short. I would have liked to see the confrontation between Mr. Smith and Mrs. X be a little longer, as it was quite intense and enjoyable.

With every page, a new layer is added to this tale, culminating in an unforgettable twist at the end. I look forward to reading many more titles from this author in the future!
