For those of you that are in a hurry, here is a short version of my About Me in haiku form: 

I am Ariele
I write books and carry ducks
My three cats are weird

For those of you who have a little more time or want to know a little bit more about me, here are a few more details.

  • I have 14 books published: more about them here. I am also currently working on releasing my newest project, Land of Szornyek, over on Patreon.

  • I do not own the ducks--my parents own the ducks.

  • I used to live in NH, but in 2017 I moved to Baltimore.

  • I like to plant things.

  • I’m the vice president of the board of Yellow Arrow Publishing, a small Baltimore non-profit that seeks to support and provide opportunities for writers that identify as women.

  • My coworkers are absurdly ineffective.

  • Terry Pratchett is my favorite author (along with Douglas Adams, Diana Wynne Jones, Trudy Canavan, Neil Gaiman, Tamora Pierce, and Carl Sagan).

  • Sometimes I give books away for free. (Click here for a free book!)

  • I have two brothers, two parents, two grandparents, three cats, one dog, one fish, and one husband.

  • I tried to write this page in alliterative prose and failed. This is as far as I got: "Being brainy, bright, and brilliant from birth, I wasted no week; I began building works, writing word after word for burgeoning books."

  • Not all of my writing costs money, and here are some links:
