Aaron Vlek is a storyteller whose work focuses primarily on the trickster as bringer of delight and proponent of disquieting humors. Many of her short stories delve into the goings on of the jinn, and of a universal imagining of the Native American character, Coyote. Some works are historical in setting while others hail from the contemporary and urban landscape. She indulges from time to time in the reimagining of classic themes of Lovecraftian horror and the occult. Aaron is a graduate of Sarah Lawrence College where she spent most of her time writing.
