AUTHOR

Lou Aronica

I am the author of several works of fiction and nonfiction, including the New York Times bestseller, THE ELEMENT (written with Sir Ken Robinson) and the national bestseller, THE CULTURE CODE (written with Dr. Clotaire Rapaille). Prior to focusing on writing, I spent two decades as a senior executive in the publishing industry, including stints as Publisher of Avon Books and Deputy Publisher of Bantam Books. I am currently Publisher of the independent publishing house The Story Plant.

My novels fall roughly into three categories. There are the HEARTS OF MEN books, which focus on men facing moments when they are most vulnerable and striving to find a path forward. There are my Gold Family novels, which follow an ensemble cast of characters through their evolving lives in a small town in New England. And then there are the fantasies, which explore themes like divorce, the power of imagination, and reconnecting with your soul from a fantastic perspective.

I live in southern Connecticut with my wife and four kids.
