Author has written 5 stories for Horror, Supernatural, Politics, and Fantasy.

So I'm Ash.

I'm a biological/social scientist based in England, Leeds

I'm a pretty awful writer, I mostly write in order to express myself creatively.

That said I'm always looking to improve myself, so if you have any feedback it would be super appreciated.

Conversely if you somehow manage to enjoy some of my work, please let me know!

I have been on fictionpress a long time, but haven't really touched it since 2008. I did have a few older stories on here from then, but they were so bad I felt inclined to take them down.

I'm going to try and update more frequently herein on, but no promises. I have been working on 2 short stories for well over 4 years now.

Primary Literary influences: Asimov, Wyndham, Tolkein, Coelho, Pratchett, Gaiman
Writing style: Prolix and whimsical.

Feel free to get in touch if you have any other questions.

The Journey from There to Here, Part 1: Up the Goat Path
A long term project of mine- looking to write a 3 part short story. Here's a rough version of Chapter 1. It's a story of growing and adventure. Written in the tradition of whimsical fantasy yarns, but based much closer to home. Not a grand tale of epic proportions but a quaint one for the modern day. A bored Samona meets an unexpected party and accidentally tumbles into a journey.

Nightlife
Not sure if it's poetry, but a very short verse I felt inspired to write after the UK general election results in 2014. I'm not 100% happy with but am unlikely to ever revisit it, I feel it's a reflection of my rawness at the time- polishing it seems odd!
