Pirateaba's name comes from the character Pirate from Pirate's blog.
Prior to becoming a writer full-time, Pirateaba worked as a stocker at Costco. Aside from the fact that Pirateaba is an extremely prolific author and also enjoys many other works of past and contemporary authors/creatives, little is known about Pirateaba's private life and it seems they like to keep it that way.
Pirateaba had actually met and shaken the hand of Eric Weihenmayer, the first blind person to reach the summit of Mount Everest.
Note: This gallery depicts Pirate, a comic character that Pirateaba created for Pirate's blog (see above), and still uses as their icon. Many fans have thus styled Pirateaba as Pirate, but Pirateaba insists that Pirate is actually a different character.
