Aaron Paul Lazar writes to soothe his soul and lives in the lovely Genesee Valley of upstate New York.


Background Information

I grew up in rural New England, surrounded by music, art, literature, gardens, bountiful family feasts, and a host of animals. Summers were spent in Maine, in my grandparents' rustic fishing resort. They were magical and innocent times, and I was a supremely happy child. Shy, retiring, and an avid reader, I always had my nose in a book, and often read outdoors. I loved being outside. I'd ride my old gelding to a quiet field, stop beneath a tree, and read as he munched on the lush grass. I guess that's when my romantic soul began to stir.

Early on, I devoured mysteries. Adventures with horses and dogs also figured prominently in my "Arrow Book Club" selections. My parents would bring home boxes of books from auctions, and I'd find myself happily lost in The Hardy Boys for weeks. I graduated to Agatha Christie, Rex Stout, Helen McInnes, Alistair McLean, and Isaac Asimov in my teen years. As time went on, I progressed to my current favorite novelists who include: John D. McDonald, James Patterson, Dick Francis, Clive Cussler, Laurie King, Lillian Jackson Braun, Rex Stout, Peter Mayle, Dean Koontz, Stephen King and Tony Hillerman, to name a few. I loved writing stories as a youth and kept copious journals.

Additional Information

Aaron Paul Lazar resides in Upstate New York with his wife, mother-in-law, dogs, and four cats. After writing in the early morning hours, he works as an applications engineer in Rochester, New York. Additional passions include vegetable, fruit, and flower gardening; preparing large family feasts; photographing his family, gardens, and the breathtakingly beautiful Genesee Valley; cross-country skiing across the rolling hills; playing a distinctly amateur level of piano, and spending “time” with the French Impressionists whenever possible. Although he adored raising his three delightful daughters, Mr. Lazar finds grandfathering his “two little buddies” to be one of the finest experiences of his life.

Aaron Paul Lazar
This slightly out of place Renaissance man writes mysteries and more. Seedlings are sneaky little germs of ideas that refuse to go away. When they sprout and grow, they'll appear here. Topics include writing, family, gardens, and more. They're often infused with a bit of gentle philosophy and always with a lust for life.
