My name is A.S.Ford and I am a writer currently residing in a little town in Wiltshire. I have a variety of short publications - more information can be found on my website https://www.asford.co.uk/ - and have been writing since I was 5 years old. I mostly write prose - short stories, novels, and novellas - but have also written, and continue to write, a range of poetry.

All my works are deeply rooted in history, fantasy (as well as other speculative genres), nature, and the things that lurk in the dark and, in 2016, I graduated from university with a first class (with Honours) Undergraduate degree in Creative Writing. I then went on to graduate with a 2:1 class (with Honours) MA degree in Creative and Critical Writing in 2017. In my spare time, away from writing and the current day-job I have to pay the bills, I also like to create art, bake in the kitchen, read a lot of books, learn about new things (or refresh my knowledge on old topics), go on walks, wear pajamas, and spend time with my fiance and our two crazy cocker spaniels!

Check out my website - asford.co.uk - for updates on my works-in-progress, access more of my writings and news, and peruse my blog series! I am hoping to become involved in even more projects when time allows.

Recently, I've been working on a project very special to me after taking a moment to re-evaluate myself, as a writer, & my journey to full-time writer. I now present to you my project: Becoming a Fantasy 'Expert' in both literature and writing! You can find it here:
