About the Author
There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.

Ayer Fleming has been writing since he could hold a pencil and scribble on paper. While his early works were under appreciated, he began his first book at only 8 years old. Through the turmoil of high school and college Ayer's writing expanded to short stories, fan fiction, and poetry.
Today, Ayer writes children's stories based on his experiences raising his own and tales from other parents. He writes fiction for young adults that he cans share and enjoy with his own growing daughter, and darker horror stories that he enjoys as an adult. He also maintains a blog on the MotoGP and World Superbike racing series that has been published on several websites, most notably Aprilia Forum.
The 1991 Kawasaki EX500 is a venerable machine. With its city tuned parallel twin engine, sturdy build, and classic styling it makes for an economic and friendly entry point into motorcycling.
Unless it's pink. Not just pink, but that bright pink that stands outside of your window in a quiet neighborhood at night and blasts love songs on its boombox. Ain't no amount of blue that can drown out that pink, so just expect to get teased for the first few years of your riding career (and any time thereafter).
After surviving the EX, Ayer moved on to an Aprilia SL1000. He primarily rides on the street, enjoying the unique sights and sounds of the Texas hill country. When scheduling permits he takes advantage of one of several tracks located in the Texas area.
Many moons ago the Fleming household was blessed with a screaming bundle of joy. Shortly thereafter, in a succession of moments involving deep introspection, the following truths were revealed to Ayer:
1. No matter how cute the baby, diapers are really that bad
2. The phrase "spit up" doesn't mean what you think it is
3. Yes you will get extremely excited, dare I say euphoric, about a small human using the potty
Since then the bundle of joy has grown into a vibrant, energetic young woman whose creativity mixed with abject stubborness has inspired may of the children's stories that Ayer writes.
Ayer Fleming grew up in the Caribbean and was raised on a steady diet of Brer Anansi folklore and classic literature such as Huckelberry Finn. He learned the richness and diversity with which language could be used to describe the world. These early life experiences forged an appreciation for the written word as an artist's medium that drives him today.
He has lived in or visited a variety of countries around the world. From the islands of the Caribbean to the streets of London and the cityscapes of America, his life and writing are the product of disparate cultural influences.
Today Ayer resides in the great state of Texas where he helps to Keep Austin Weird. He travels with his family at every opportunity.
