A few minutes with Ash Hartwell

Born in Maine in the US, Ash grew up in England. After leaving school he worked for a bank, and then went into retail management until going to the University of Hertfordshire where, in his 30s, he trained as a nurse before working in a large ITU just outside London.
Following a back injury, Ash took up writing part-time and has had over thirty short stories published by Undead Press, Static Movement, and 13 O-Clock press. His first solo anthology Zombies, Vamps, And Fiends was published last month and Mark Woods in his blog review said,
“I can honestly say it is a great collection in the tradition of many of the late, great Alfred Hitchcock collections I remember reading as a kid.
In his first book, Ash introduces us to a variety of scary, thrilling and often accurately chilling possible futures where the forces of darkness continue to plague us despite mankind’s modern advances.
Though the book is a bit of a mixed bag at times, I really liked it and thought many of the stories work really well. With touches of Laymon, King, and even the likes of M.R.James and Algernon Blackwood at times, Hartwell still manages to exert his own writing style to great and often spine-chilling effect.”

His anthology can be purchased via Amazon for Kindle and as a paperback here.
