Morley Ashland


Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a small village in Portugal.
I always stayed at home searching adventures on T.V., but unfortunately, Portugal is not proficient in playing science fiction stories (but you have plenty of soap-operas).
So I just grabbed a pen and paper and started imagining new and different worlds, and what I would do if I was there.
In time it became natural to imagine and quickly describing them almost as real. From there to place awesome characters and give them a role in your story is a pleasure that few grasp with needed intensity.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
It was a small sci-fi book called "The Lost Ship" and it really turned my imagination on as the story developed into some of the available endings.
I wanted more and... here I am doing it!
How do you approach cover design?
I make the covers myself for two reasons.
I didn’t found a designer with suitable imagination. Nevertheless they all presented me great covers when I asked. They just didn’t fit.
When I see the bookshelf, many designs overlap, with all trying to get your attention one way or the other.
The different one´s will be the chosen, in time.
