Carl Asher


Carl Asher was born and raised within the isolation of The Family International. Kept segregated from all outside influences as a child, such as music, movies and books, he longed for escape. The secret discovery of George Orwell’s 1984 fueled his desire for literary contraband, and his admiration of such authors as a result drove his passion to become an author himself.
