Aaron J. Clarke grew up in North Queensland, attending Bowen State High School and then enrolling at James Cook University to study chemistry and biochemistry. In his second year, he experienced his first psychotic episode and was hospitalised for several months. The following year, he returned to JCU as an English student, where he was later awarded a BA Hons in English Literature. In 2004, Jacobyte Books published his first novella, Epiphany of Life.

Aaron is an avid reader of nineteenth-century literature, and hopes to one day write a novel in French. Aaron's interests are varied and range from classical music to molecular biology. In 2004, the Journal of Young Investigators published his paper on schizophrenia, an illness from which he personally suffers.

In 2018, he released a translation of J.K. Hysman's A Dilemma (Un Dilemme, 1887).
