I write mainly gay, m/m, slash, yaoi stories. I suppose, with a few exceptions, I should call them novels really.

I have no great literary ambitions. I just tell stories, and I try to do it as good as I can, hoping other people will enjoy reading them.
Most of them have explicit scenes in them, often of a rather kinky nature. But they're only the raisins in the pudding, because — as I already said — I actually enjoy telling stories. That means there always is a plot, or, more often,

Anaxantis and Ehandar from my series “Dark Tales of Randamor the Recluse.”

It may seem arrogant to choose one of my own couples, but I don't think it is. I know them better than all fictional couples of other writers. I lived with them through all the anger, hardships, and hate before it turned into love. Even so it wasn't an easy choice, because I wrote quite a few couples and I love them all for various reasons.(less)

New Release: Dagger of Deception

Cover of Dagger of Deception

In the World of Anaxantis…

When I first started writing The Invisible Chains, I had a fairly linear story in mind. I didn’t foresee how it would swell up and bulge out left and right, up and down, until it contained more than a dozen storylines and literally hundreds of characters.

 

The Dark Tales of Randamor the Recluse, of which the Chains-trilogy is the first part,

Quotes by Andrew Ashling  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Deal with all this, live with myself, you mean? I honestly don't know. I stand often enough at the abyss of my soul, asking that same question, looking down into the dark crevices where the black monsters dwell on the bottom. They gaze up at me, and I look them in the eyes. “This also you are,” they say, and I almost fall into the void.”
“And then?”
Anaxantis shrugged.
“And then? I turn around and go do what needs to be done. What else is there?”
Andrew Ashling, The Invisible Chains - Part 1: Bonds of Hate

“A while ago?” Anaxantis asked. “Yes, he raped me a while ago. Exactly nine months and two days ago. What's that? Nine months or nine minutes. It's the same. And it is in the past, you say? Then why is it still happening, every day, every time I close my eyes? Every time I hear someone behind me, and I don't know who it is? How is it that I get an almost irresistible urge to kill anyone who happens to touch me unexpectedly? Tell me, Hemarchidas, how do I forgive, let alone forget, something that is still happening, that keeps happening over and over? How? How do I do that?”
Andrew Ashling, The Invisible Chains - Part 1: Bonds of Hate

“I will give you a few guarantees of my own, Mukthar. I guarantee that before the sun sets, even if you win, even if my cold, dead body is lying on the field, you will rue the day you ever set foot in the Plains. For every inch you advance I'll exact gallons of Mukthar blood. I guarantee that there will be not one family of the Bear Mukthars or they will mourn at least one of theirs. I guarantee that even if you are triumphant the fruits of victory will taste like dust in your mouth. I guarantee that if you fail to kill me today, you will meet me again. You will meet me at the Ximerionian border. You will meet me at every city, town, village, and hamlet. You will meet me on every Amirathan crossroad, on every hill. I will fight you with every sword at my command, with every arrow, with every dagger. I will fight you with pitchforks. I will fight you with the very rocks of the land you try to conquer. I will never, never, never give up.

~Anaxantis, before the Battle of the Zinchara (May 29th, 1453 aed)
