Episode 53: Solo Traveling, Angry Gods, and Moving Day with Aaron Hodges


When you talk to Aaron Hodges you feel his genuine personality. He's the author of 8 books, including a travel guide which he released in December of 2019 (ironic and kind of funny given the timing).


Aaron Hodges was born in 1989 in the small town of Whakatane, New Zealand. He studied for five years at the University of Auckland, completing a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology and Geography, and a Masters of Environmental Engineering. After working as an environmental consultant for two years, he grew tired of office work and decided to quit his job and explore the world. During his travels, he picked up an old draft of a novel he once wrote in High School (titled The Sword of Light) and began to rewrite the story. Six months later he published his first novel, Stormwielder, and hasn't looked back since.


In this episode of DIY Writer Podcast, I was impressed with how I could feel the worlds he creates while he tells you about his books and his life in general. Aaron is a laid back, intelligent, and talented author from New Zealand, I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
