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.

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)

Supanova Wrap-Up

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 of t Read more of this blog post »

Ten years after my first read of this book I have read it again, and I still did not like it.

I was going to give this book 4 stars, and then it made me cry and I decided it was worthy of the full 5 stars. Anne Bishop is truly a master at her craft. Her Muse is very kind to her.
