Ash Oldfield is a fantasy fiction and children’s writer from Melbourne, Australia. Always having a love for the written word, Ash wrote her first stories by moonlight at the tender age of five, long after her parents thought she had gone to bed. To this very day Ash still prefers to write by the light of the moon long after any sensible person has succumbed to sleep.

When she is not working on her latest piece of fiction, Ash enjoys drinking good coffee, taking her dog for walks on the beach and hanging out with her two cats. In 2012 she took the plunge, quit her day job and has been writing full time ever since.

Ash's debut novel, Fyrebyrne Island was published in 2017. Ever wondered what it would be like to be a dragon? Then this book migh

This would absolutely have to be a world that is rich with magic.

Of course the world of Harry Potter would be the dream. If I could have gone to Hogwarts...*happy dream sigh*.

I would also love to visit the world of the fae from The Bitterbynde Series, by Cecilia Dart-Thornton, because it feels like such a rich, vibrant world filled with magic and wonder. I would float weightless through the air and gorge myself on all of the amazing food and wine (I know, I know, once you taste the food of faerie you can never return home, but one can dream). And just like that I'm off to re-read The Ill Made Mute.(less)

If that doesn't work I spend my writing time reading books by writers much more talented than myself and cross my fingers and toes in the hopes that it will inspire me.(less)

Another Melbourne Supanova has been and gone and I had such a fantastic time talking to people who are as crazy about dragons as I am. I would like to say a special thank you to those of you who came over to say hello after meeting me last year.

This Supanova was a very special occasion for me because it doubled up as the book launch for The Lost City, book 2 of The Rachaya Series. Many copies o... Read more of this blog post »

This was a wild ride and I loved every word of it. It was far more comprehensible than I had thought it would be, and the narrative style was unique and interesting. For me it's definitely worthy of being shelved with the classics.

I don't know why I've been avoiding this book for so long. At around 30000 words it was a quick read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I can definitely see myself reading it a second time and getting even more out of it.
