With a degree in Fine Arts, and a long professional career in design, AC brings unflinching attention to detail to his writings and poetry. He strives for emotional realness in all circumstances, and excels at structure and dialogue. A love of history, philosophy, and the humanities informs his work, while having honed his craft from his adolescence has allowed him to delve into the workings of the human heart. He also has a wicked sense of humor.
Ace’s stories explore the harsh realities of coming of age. They include tragic tales and heartbreaking moments. Yet, if you stay with it you’ll find characters that fight through the darkness and find their way into the light.
Aditus' first story ever was about an earthworm hating the rain. Since then he has written short stories, novellas, novels, and poems. His characters are often standing in their own way, with at least one of them being of the chaotic-good variety. While not favoring any specific genre, aditus sure does love his vampires!
Altimexis' stories typically deal with high school, coming out and falling in love. "Naptown Tales" is a series of stories centered in a conservative Midwestern American city. "Love in a Chair" is the first in a series dealing with gay youth with disabilities. "A Fish Out of Water" deals with two Jewish boys, one Hasidic, and their forbidden love. And there are more stories in the works.
Most of my writing has been technical in nature. Now I’m trying to find my niche in recreational writing. Favorite genres are sci-fi, adventure and human interest. Favorite authors are Douglas Preston, Catherine Ryan Hyde and GA’s Dom Luka. Currently have four stories on this site.
