About Asher Conrad

Nature sometimes conspires against mankind in her distribution of talents; such is the case with Asher Conrad. We are two, each with a distinct talent, and between us we make exactly one writer.

Brian is an American call center executive with an innate genius for story construction. Bettina, a Canadian, was gifted with the talent to understand what the hell Brian is talking about and to turn it all into a wonderful collection of words. Each is indispensible to the other.

Having met in the corporate world, we share neither domicile nor country, but using the tools of modern communication we overcome the barriers that distance once imposed.

We continue to write together, and are currently working on "Daddy Date Night", a novel that our mothers won't be embarrassed to read

Review by: Brendan Oxford on May 01, 2012 :
When I first picked up this book I wasn’t sure that I’d like it, or what to expect at all. This book is a large step out of my comfort zone of sci-fi and fantasy, but I’m pleased to report that it was fantastic. Ten Toes Down is fast paced with each adventure starting before our main character Sebastian, or even the reader, gets a chance to catch a breath after the last one ended. This book is a must read for guys everywhere, whether it be to commiserate with Sebastian and his friends, live vicariously through them, or even just think “Man, I’m glad I’m not like them.” Regardless, you’ll be sure to be laughing throughout. I found this book to be a quick read, but this is because when I picked it up I didn’t put it down until my boss was glaring at me for reading at work, or my eyes were drooping and the words were blurring hours past my bedtime. I read the book on the bus, trains, streetcars and subways, and was very disappointed when I flipped to the last page.

"Ten Toes Down" starts explosively, introducing Sebastian Behr hungover in the front seat of his truck, then flipping back to the day it all started -- when he innocently answered his wife's phone and came ear-to-ear with her long-term lover. This is the story of Sebastian, an average guy with a hotshot job just trying to play things by the book. When his white-picket-fence plans get blown out of the water by his wife's affair, Sebastian gets back with his bachelor buddies and is determined to enjoy life, and every beer, bar and casual hook-up along the way. Seductive, yes, but when Sebastian loses his job in the recession of 2008, things start to spiral out of control... This is a well-written but wild ride with a cynical edge that'll keep you turning the pages. And somehow, between the crazy escapades and endless beers, it'll make you reconsider what it really is that we want from good times, close friends and hot sex.

Review by: Neil Hurlbut on April 27, 2012 :
Great book! Very entertaining, lots of humor, comedy of errors. Everybody knows or knew someone like Sebastian Behr, that guy that could pick up any girl. Now I know how that guy I knew back in highschool turned out! Conrad really knows exactly how men think, this book is a testimate to that. He also has the male ego down perfectly. I felt I could really relate to the characters and their shenanigans (been there done that comes to mind)
Definitely recommend this, lots of fun and you might even learn a thing or two!
Best book I've read in a while.

Who knew being unattached and unemployed could be so much fun! This is the story of Sebastian Behr, the man who had everything, and then had it all taken away from him. After his wife leaves him Sebastian turns to the most powerful drug on the market: sex.
With his buddies cheering him on, Sebastian uses this sedative to the point of overdose. The friendships and the high jinx will keep you turning the pages.
Asher Conrad's style is both insightful and funny.
