Gaming, hiking, skating, reading, writing, music, martial arts, and taking long walks by the beach at sunset, playing guitar or synthesizer, thunderstorms and rainy weather, desert sunrises and sand between my toes, and the best part... I love Halloween! I get to wear my creepy all white contact lenses. Mwuahahaha!
So you'd like to know a little about me? Pull up a comfy chair and relax a bit. I respond to questions about my knowledge base in export compliance and gaming as well as any book I've wrote or am writing, so feel free to leave questions or emails and I will get to them the best I can.
Everything listed above is true. I love all of it and more. My background currently is in export compliance and gaming; what an odd mix. My certifications in both EAR and ITAR accompany years of logistics in the field of science.
It was interesting growing up. I never knew all the people who came to our house wasn't another brother or sister but my sibling's friends. They all came to get their haircut by mom, long talks and advice from dad, and either breakfast or dinner consisted of at least 4-13 people at any given time that weren't related to us.
Aralyn Kraft is my pen name and chosen as my alter ego. Hey, what's one more identity to add to an already large family? My passion for writing stems from my mom's love of reading to me when I was young. While I loved hearing the stories, I always imagined different endings or the 'what would happen if' got plugged in somewhere along the lines.
Motto: It's all good if I can keep waking up on the right side of the dirt.
If I can't, then let me be the best zombie or funnest ghost ever!
Dog moment: "Best day ever!" with everything.
Cat moment: "Ohhh that patch of sun feels good." all year round.
Bird moment: "Oh look, shiny!" tweet! as I write.
Hmm...I was suppose to be doing something. Wonder what it was?
