Alde Baron

I’m a self-taught author and illustrator. My love for writing comes from an enjoyment of adventures in fiction, video games, and movies — especially epic stories. 

I taught myself to author stories because I didn’t want formal training that would tell me how things are supposed to be. I believe creativity can flow best without too many rules and standards, which comes from a formal education.

Illustrating and writing allow me to express impossible or extraordinarily difficult things, such as exploring a mile-high city in the clouds, giving a dragon a nose piercing, or making a living as an author. 

My published works include A Not So Normal Girl, A Knight’s Chance, Get Off My Island!, various short stories, and illustration videos.

My favorite video games are The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Final Fantasy IX, and Super Mario 64. My favorite comic strips are Pearls Before Swine, Dilbert, and Calvin and Hobbes.
