Aaron S Gallagher was born in Syracuse, New York and currently resides in Leander, Texas with his long-suffering wife, three rowdy teenagers, and a thoroughly indifferent cat. His writing career began at a young age after he annexed an old mechanical typewriter from his mother.
His work has appeared in Analog Science Fiction & Fact, Ares Magazine, and Escape Pod. He has received both a semi-finalist and honorable mention in the L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future contest. His previous novel, The Mercer Street Murder, won the Book Talk Radio Club Award for Best in Crime Fiction 2018. In between haranguing magazine editors he also wrote 17 books and refuses to stop. His genres include crime fiction, science fiction, and drama.
He prefers to read deep stories populated with characters that develop and breathe on their own, and endeavors to write the same. His goal is to create new worlds, compelling characters, and to bring something unique into the world.
