About me, Aaron Brooks

My love for storytelling began with my grandfather. He’d draw with me for hours. Every picture was a tale of dragons, and space ships and hero’s and villains and about a million Ninja Turtles. In my teens I found the works of Frank Miller and Todd McFarlane, making my own comics, trying (and failing) to copying their twisted genius. Then in my teens, I followed my mom to an acting class and fell in love with that form of storytelling. As an actor, I’ve been lucky enough to work on Battlestar Galactica, Stargate and Fringe, to name a few. Here’s a link to my imdb page: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1604940/videogallery?ref_=nm_ov_vi_sm

In 2007 I went to Vancouver Film School for writing, and since have developed and produced screenplays and pilots with Writ Large, Campfire prod, 3Arts, Ravenwest, Clone Wolf, Keystone Pictures, and Muse Entertainment.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, I’ve dedicated myself to prose. Influenced by greats like Martha Wells, Hugh Howie, Anne Leckie, Joe Abercrombie, George RR Martin and Dan Simmons. 

When I’m not writing, you can find me: Playing basketball with my son. Snowboarding down a mountain at breakneck speeds. Lounging on a beach with a cocktail. Consumed by fantasy football. Throwing my X-Box controller in anger when Madden has the audacity to make Nuk Hopkins drop a dime from Kyler over the middle. Feeling guilty for eating an entire pint of Ben&Jerry’s ice cream in under ten minutes. Drinking wine with friends and family, lovingly roasting each other as we play Settlers of Catan. Listening to some mid-to-late-90’s hip-hop. And in bed, snuggled up, with a good book.
