Aym-ing to Please...

Once during a radio interview, Terrence Aym was asked what motivated him to write. He responded that he writes for two primary reasons: the first is to entertain and inform his readers; the second, writing gives him personal pleasure.

Many of Aym's favorite people are fellow writers and aspiring writers. If you're a member of Helium, he invites you to contact him to become a Helium 'friend.' has described Aym as a 'Renaissance man.' Others perceive him as eclectic in his knowledge and interests. And while Aym does tend towards a heterogeneous style, his goal is often to gather diverse elements or subjects and - using them like a catalyst - create a synergy between them. He believes this approach offers the reader a stimulating new perspective on both older news and breaking news.

Aym has appeared on US radio stations as well as the featured guest on a premier South African radio show. His articles have been discussed on television and debated on nationwide radio shows such as Coast to Coast AM.
