Product description

About the Author

Dyrk Ashton was born in Athens (Ohio, not Greece), on a chilly Halloween morning. He whiled away his adolescent years and teens reading Stuart Little, Jonathan Livingston Seagull, everything Verne, London, Kipling, White, Lewis, Doyle, Burroughs, Poe, Howard, Fleming, Lovecraft, Tolkein, Zelazny, and generally ignoring school -- though he somehow managed excellent grades (except in Algebra, of course). He earned a BFA and masters degrees in filmmaking at The Ohio State University, which lead to working in film production in Columbus, OH. He then headed to Los Angeles where he wrote and pitched scripts but fed and clothed himself as a "jack-of-all-trades” in film production. Mostly, however, he made his living as a SAG/AFTRA actor, appearing in nothing you've ever seen. And if you have seen it, he was probably in it so briefly you missed him. After nearly six years scraping by in L.A., he realized he probably wouldn’t, in all actuality, die if he never got to make a big Hollywood film, so he moved back to the Midwest and went to Bowling Green State University for a PhD in Film Studies. He wrote a dissertation on Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings movies. And they gave him a diploma. Shocking. After four years in a tenure track position he began teaching entirely online, and found he actually had time to read books again -- fiction, sci-fi, fantasy -- not just academic journals and textbooks. Then he realized he actually had time to write. And so he did, bringing to bear his lifelong fascination with mythology and storytelling and gathering together (some clearly ridiculous) ideas he’d had for years. The result is Paternus, the first in a trilogy of contemporary mythic fantasy adventures for grown ups. And yes, Dyrk Ashton is his real name. His father is of (mixed) English decent, and his mother (mixed) Scottish, (a Campbell, no less, though her father always emphasized they were highland Campbells, not lowland. The highland Scots fought against the English, the lowlands sided with them, you see). Anyway, Dyrk’s mom liked the way the name looked when spelled with a “y” instead of the more common “i”. Dyrk currently resides in NW Ohio, where he geeks out on movies and books, and writes about regular folks and their trouble with gods and monsters.
