About Me


I’m Ashley Manning, a 27 year old writer. I write for a young adult audience, but aim for adults to enjoy my book as well. I write fantasy and horror stories.

I read a lot. Anything that I can get my hands on. Children and Victorian books are my favorite, especially with a Gothic twist. I appreciate any suggestions you might have.

I also review films, with a promise to put up one review a day.

The aim is to make at least one update post a week, mostly on a Tuesday. These will be about anything, from book reviews, my own writing and things that I’ve been thinking about. I also aim to publish one short story a month.

If you have a book that you would like to be reviewed then send me an email via the contact me page. I would be happy to do it, as long as I have the time.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

    I would really suggest The Mortal Instruments and the House of Night series. House of Night is about vampires and has more of a creepy storyline, Mortal Instruments writes about demons, shadow hunters, and etc.

    Ooh…I love books that take place in the 19th century as well. I write young adult, and my writing constantly latches on to that century.


  11. Good luck with your debut novel. And enjoy your studies at Northampton; a few freinds of mine went there a few years ago.


  12. Thanks for stopping by wordifull.com and “liking” my words. Looking forward to reading yours:)


  13. Have you read Ann Radcliffe?


  14. Hey, Ashley, the professor sends his greetings. Horror? Is it really scary? πŸ™‚


  15. Very cool πŸ™‚
    Good choice of reading material, I like some of that stuff too. Anything with a good twist I love.
