I. A. Ashcroft has been writing fiction in many forms for almost twenty years. The author's first book, written at age seven, featured the family cat, who befriended dragons and eagles, all while hunting an evil sorceress. This preoccupation with the fantastical has not changed in the slightest.
Now, the author dwells in Tempe, AZ and writes almost exclusively in the realm of darker fantasy, loving to entertain adults with stories of magic, wonder, despair, violence, and hope. Ashcroft has a deep love of mythology and finding the story threads that resurface in humanity's tales over and over throughout the centuries, seeking to bring those elements into every tale penned. The author also loves diverse and intriguing casts of characters.
When not buried in a book, one might find Ashcroft learning languages, charting road trips, and playing tabletop RPGs with clever and fun people.
