Meet the Author

Ashley's stories have an unexpected twist at the end. They might make you chuckle, or pull at your heart strings, but your reaction is also likely to surprise you. The inspiration for many of Ashley's stories comes from historical events or from travel. Recent travels in Greece and research into a mysterious murder in Australia in 1972 has lead to Ashley's latest book, In Too Deep. As well as following a murder trail through the Greek Isles, Australia and England, it confronts a perennial social issue.


Ashley is a member of the SA Writers' Centre and recently wrote an article for them on Embracing ePublishing which was inspired by his experience with Smashwords.

    A Very Short Story

    The book consists of a mere 13 pages. Within that time one gets a real feel for the characters. Very well written with an unexpected ending.

    Boring

    This is a very unoriginal story. Very flat characters and almost no real plot development. The ending makes the whole story seem pointless and is very abrupt. My thoughts when i finished reading - well that was dumb.

    Feels like an excerpt

    Though fairly well written (I did see a couple typos), this was an odd short story. Too much time was spent developing secondary characters and the “unexpected" ending didn't feel like a twist so much as an unsatisfying payoff.

    It felt like the part of a chapter of a book.

    Too short

    The title makes it sound very dramatic, but it only seems like the introduction to a novel.

    This was a great short story

    "After the Dance" was a great coming of age story from the last century.
