Davis Ashura is an author of such sublime depth and beauty that his works have been known to cause a tear to fall from the eyes of even the hardest of hearts.
Just kidding.
But he does write.
This humble writer, who refers to himself in the third person, resides in North Carolina, sharing a house with his magnificent wife who somehow overlooked Davis’ eccentricities and married him anyway. As proper recompense for her sacrifice, Davis then unwittingly turned his magnificent wife into a nerd-girl. To her sad and utter humiliation, she knows exactly what is meant by ‘Kronos’. Living with them are their two rambunctious boys, both of whom have at various times helped turn Davis’ once lustrous, raven-black hair prematurely white (

Hi Bryce,
Glad you liked the Castes! As for William Wilde, it's YA and different. It takes place on Earth in the 1980s. I think of it as Percy Jackson meets Stranger Things. The first book is intentionally simple since I wrote it for my teenage sons, but each book increases in complexity and raises the stakes. And yes, it's connected to the Castes, even though that series takes place on another world. Somehow the main characters of Castes cross over to Earth and do what warriors do best. BTW I leave a big clue for how that happens at the end of Castes.
Regards,

Davis(less)

Just found out that A Warrior’s Path is the 2015 winner of the Beverly Hills Book Awards in the category of Fantasy!

Yeah, I know they misspelled my name and got my website address wrong (I really should have chosen ‘David’ as a pen name instead of ‘Davis’), but I’m too excited to care! Read more of this blog post »

“There are many lives a man can lead, but in the end, they all lead to death.”
Davis Ashura, A Warrior's Path

“But your performance in the Grand Melee and the Unitary Trail is part of the past. We can learn from it, but it provides nothing more than education. Any glory earned doesn't linger. By now, it's gone. It is this day and every day following which are more important.”
Davis Ashura, Memories of Prophecies

“-Take some time off and enjoy yourself. Life isn't all about work.
>Work is how we define our lives.
-And pleasure makes that life worth living.”
Davis Ashura, A Testament of Steel
