USA Today bestselling author Ash Krafton is a writer of all things spec fic. She believes spectacular endings make the best beginnings...
Why not? One billion black holes can't be wrong.
Her first novel BLEEDING HEARTS: Book One of the Demimonde was published in March 2012. The manuscript earned finalist distinction in several Romance Writers of America 2011 competitions and has earned several other awards. The follow-up title BLOOD RUSH (Demimonde #2) was released May 2013, and WOLF'S BANE (Demimonde #3) was released June 2014. Ash has recently re-released the titles with second editions.
Most recently, she's released titles in her newest urban fantasy series, The Demon Whisperer. CHARM CITY introduced the exorcist mage Simon Alliant as he battles demons from Hell while struggling with his own demon--addiction. The series includes the follow-up MURDER THE LIGHT, the series prequel STRAITJACKETS AND HOLY WATER, and a short story AMULETS & AGONY. Currently, she's working on THE ABSENT MINDED MAGICIAN.
In addition to novel-length fiction, Ash enjoys writing poetry and short prose, some of which earned big ups by CNW/FFWA in 2008 and 2011 as well as the Abilene Writers Guild in 2010. Ms. Krafton made her publishing debut in Spring 2009 when her poetry appeared in Poe Little Thing; her work has since appeared in several other journals including Niteblade, Ghostlight Magazine, The Skyline Review, and Silver Blade. One of her poems was selected as a Pushcart prize nominee.
Ash enjoys travelling with her family, mangling foreign languages, and dragging her husband to the front of the pit at heavy metal shows. She resides in a rural town in the heart of the Pennsylvania anthracite coal region (which suffers from a distinct lack of PokemonGo spawn sites).
She'll never leave, either, because coal is just another example of a spectacular ending waiting for a brilliant beginning. (It’s kinda fitting.) And because, like a black hole, once you’re in...you never get out.
"She has done what very few authors have done for me to date: made all her books something I put on my urgent to-read pile."
