About this author

Ash Krafton's poetry and short fiction have appeared in several journals, including Niteblade, Bete Noire, Abandoned Towers, and Silver Blade. Ms. Krafton resides in the heart of the Pennsylvania coal region and lurks near her blog (http://ash-krafton.blogspot.com). No surprise she is still hard at work writing-- the Books of the Demimonde (BLEEDING HEARTS, BLOOD RUSH, WOLF'S BANE) are available through Pink Narcissus Press, while STRANGER AT THE HELL GATE and WORDS THAT BIND can be found at The Wild Rose Press.
She also writes New Adult speculative fiction as AJ Krafton. Her upcoming titles include THE HEARTBEAT THIEF, TAKIN' IT BACK, and FACE OF THE ENEMY.

I studied pharmacy in college and work full time in retail (LOVE giving flu shots!) but ten years ago, or so, I just started writing. I had no real goals or plans; didn't have any specific projects or books. I just wanted to write out the schemes and passages that I daydreamed about in my down-time moments.

I wrote several thousand words in a series of related passages, kind of a loosely-jointed story. It was fun. It was a hobby. But then one morning I woke up with a tagline in my head and the remnants of a dream that still held my mind's eye... and I was driven to write it out.

That dream eventually became my first novel, BLEEDING HEARTS.

Been tapping the keys non-stop every since!

Thanks for asking...(less)
