AJ Asher

Biography

A. J. Asher is a pen name chosen specifically for publishing ebooks.

The photo is my youngest giving her impression of a 'cute smile' for a family photo. No one noticed until we had it developed. She is older now - LOL.

The formative years for my wife and I centered around farm life. We met and married in college and then spent time as a married couple in the military prior to returning to college for the finish of our degrees. After college we were blessed with three healthy children, one boy (the oldest) and two girls. Common interests that drew my wife and I together were mathematics (how we met), music, and a deep love of reading.

Family life experiences have included seeing/enjoying/suffering through numerous dogs (the last died 6 years ago), fish (the salt water type were harder to keep alive - at least in our household), parrots (the last is still with us but has gotten nippy), and gerbils (a small mammal of the order Rodentia once known simply as "desert rats") who, if their cage is placed too close, will eat the drapes (sigh). Who knew?
Other learned family facts include: Waterbeds and small fingers are not a match made in heaven (you can not sleep in a 105 degree waterbed - no matter how tired you are); A child can find a way to use a plastic 'big wheel' and a grass lawn to break a perfectly good wrist bone; and, raising tomatoes for bacon and tomato sandwiches (yum) only works if your dogs don't develop a yen for eating the tomatoes.

Life experiences outside of family include: military experience {Hey you in the green hat!}, multiple degrees in mathematics {Axiom of Choice? I have to know that?}, college level instructing {How come we can’t have an open book exam?}, sales {No really. Trust me!}, and work for a U.S. government agency {I think I might be secret service because nobody tells me anything}. Okay, okay I fess, definitely not secret service. Those folks are way too serious. My official government title: peon. My unofficial government title: lowly peon.

I am appreciative of your interest and sincerely hope you enjoy my story telling.

At a grim moment in the Earth Lin-Teye war the impossible lit a spark of hope for Earth’s retreating forces. That it was authored by a unit of naval misfits known as Lonsdale’s Losers made the results all the more improbable. This is the unlikely story of Patrol Squadron CTI-351 - its struggles and its inspiring stand at Tarayla.
