'The only writer to whom you should compare yourself is the writer you were yesterday' - David Schlosser
A.S. Ford has been writing since the age of five years old. A love fuelled by her passion for reading as well as strong encouragement from her family. Over the years she has continued to develop futher her interests in history, fantasy, nature, and the things that lurk in the dark in order to twist them into poetry and prose. As of 2017, she has both Undergraduate and MA degrees in Creative Writing.
As well as writing, she works a full time job. In her free time, she likes to relax with her partner and their two cocker spaniels in the fields around their home in the English Cotswolds. She also enjoys drawing, experimenting in the kitchen, reading the many books shelved (and stacked) around the house, and wearing pajamas!
