Ashe Barker

USA Today best-selling author Ashe Barker has been an avid reader of fiction for many years, erotic and other genres. She still loves reading, the hotter the better. But now she has a good excuse for her guilty pleasure—research.

Ashe tends to draw on her own experience to lend color, detail, and realism to her plots and characters. An incident here, a chance remark there, a bizarre event, or quirky character, any of these can spark a story idea.

Ashe lives in the north of England, on the edge of the Brontë moors, and enjoys the occasional flirtation with pole dancing and drinking Earl Grey tea. When not writing—which is not very often these days—her time is divided between her role as taxi driver for her teenage daughter and caring for a menagerie of dogs, tortoises. And a very grumpy cockatiel.

At the last count, Ashe had over thirty titles on general release with publishers on both sides of the Atlantic and several more in the pipeline. She writes M/f, M/M, and occasionally rings the changes with a little M/M/f. All Ashe’s books feature BDSM. She writes explicit stories, always hot, but offering far more than just sizzling sex. Ashe likes to read about complex characters and to lose herself in compelling plots, so that’s what she writes too.

Ashe has a pile of story ideas still to work through and keeps thinking of new ones at the most unlikely moments, so you can expect to see a lot more from her.

 

Ashe loves to hear from readers.
