Ash Adler

Biography

I was born and raised in the United States before moving to Toronto, Canada. An insatiable hunger for the written word burned in me from an early age and, together with an active imagination and some friendly encouragement, drove me into writing as an escape from the trappings of the mundane world.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first story that I wrote for pleasure was in 2004. I was a new member of a forum for the video game BloodRayne, and while browsing through the fanfic section, I saw someone asking if anyone would write one with her in it. Nobody was taking up the offer, so I decided to give it a try. I don't remember exactly how it went, but the reception was positive enough to make me want to write more, and thus, a hobby was born (and as an added bonus, the person who starred in that fanfic ended up becoming one of my dearest friends).
