Aurelio O'Brian

Although he had specified single child, Nob Hill, and substantial wealth on his pre-birth application, Aurelio O’Brien was flabbergasted to discover that he had been born into a raucous household of seven rival offspring living amongst the cherry orchards of Sunnyvale, California.

To avoid drowning in this sibling sea, Mr. O’Brien cultivated creative talents: looking innocent to his parents while smirking at his brothers, deflecting blame for all things broken, and most of all, inventive storytelling. These gifts served him well during his schooling at CalARTS and later employment as an animator, designer, and story artist in the sweatshops of Hollywood.

After twenty years of telling their stories, he resolved start telling his own. "EVE" is his first novel, and another is on the way. He also has a short story entitled, "Agony & Ecstasy Jones" that will be appearing in an anthology book early next year.
