Aaron Lee Yeager comes from a family of ballet dancers. His parents met dancing at Ballet West together. So, the first few years of his life were spent backstage at productions like CATS, Dreamgirls, and A Chorus Line, where he developed a lifelong phobia to stage makeup. He grew up in Santa Monica, California, perfecting the art of making Lego spaceships and blaming his Nintendo controller every time he died in The Legend of Zelda. After high school he lived in Argentina for two years as an LDS missionary, where he became addicted to mayonnaise, and developed a crippling fear of small dogs. In college he racked up an astonishing amount of debt studying journalism, acting, creative writing, and finally aviation. In fact, he was well on his way to becoming an airline pilot when he suddenly developed a rare illness that left him with severe heart damage. Bed-ridden for about a year, he began writing, as it was one of the few things he could do.
For the next decade he worked as a full-time stay-at-home parent while writing six books. The Isle of Wysteria series, Heart of a Traitor, Kharmic Rebound, and Ambrosia. When his son Stephen passed away in July of 2012, he decided that he would dedicate all his books to Stephen, and that he would no longer wait for anyone's permission to be published anymore. He then began self-publishing his novels as ebooks.
Aaron has many hand-drawn awards for writing that his children have given to him, which he proudly displays on his refrigerator. He has also somehow managed to hang onto a basketball participation trophy he got when about nine years old. The funny thing is he doesn't even like basketball all that much, but it makes for a good keepsake of his youth.
Aaron is deeply obsessed with Anime, and has an impressive collection of chibi figurines. He adores cooking and would probably be a chef if he had a chance to start over again.
Aaron has worn a lot of hats throughout his life. Author, Radio DJ, Pilot, Newspaper Editor, Space Education Flight Instructor, Teacher, Game Show Host, Actor, Ambassador, Stage Hand, Playwright, Salesman, and Director. But of all the hats he has worn, the two that mean the most to him, the two that matter the most, are Husband and Father.
When asked about the secret to his success, Aaron always has the same response: Every good thing in his life came about because he married a good woman.
