Aaron Michael Ritchey
Aaron Ritchey is a man of many talents. Not only is he a columnist here on Writing From the Peak, but he will be presenting a workshop with Deb Courtney and Sue Mitchell for the Thursday Pre-Conference programming, AND is our Master of Ceremonies for PPWC 2013. If you've seen him speak before, you know that he will absolutely do a fantastic job as M.C. He is engaging and funny, and he has more energy than the rest of the room put together.
Aaron's debut novel, The Never Prayer, was released in March of 2012, and it's safe to say he's making quite a name for himself 'round these parts. He presents encouraging workshops on writing, not just for Pikes Peak Writers, but at many conferences and conventions, as well as stand alone presentations like his upcoming Hook Me! coming up on March 20.
He's also a dad and has a day job working with computers, but there's no doubt this promising author will see a successful career in writing in the years to come.
