Aisling Mancy

Raised on the mean streets and back lots of Hollywood by a Yoda-look-alike grandfather, award-winning author, Ash Mancy, doesn’t conform, doesn’t fit in, is epic awkward, and lives to perfect a deep-seated oppositional defiance disorder. In a constant state of fascination with the trivial, Ash contemplates such weighty questions as If time and space are curved, then where do all the straight people come from? When not writing, Ash can be found taming waves on western shores, pondering the nutritional value of sunsets, appreciating the much maligned dandelion, unhooking guide ropes from stanchions, and marveling at all things ordinary.

Ash lives, most of the time, on the east coast of the United States. Ash writes mystery thrillers, science fiction, fantasy, and romance. A Solitary Man won a 2016 Rainbow Award for Best Gay Mystery Thriller and Sleight of Heart was a 2016 Rainbow Award Finalist for Best Gay Fantasy Romance. You can also find Ash’s award-winning Young Adult novels under C. Kennedy. Writing as C. Kennedy, Ómorphi was a runner up in the 2014 Rainbow Awards for Best LGBT Young Adult Fiction, Slaying Isidore's Dragons was a finalist in the 2015 Rainbow Awards for Best LGBT Young Adult Fiction, and Elpída won a 2017 Rainbow Award for Best Gay Young Adult Fiction.

Ash prefers "he" over "she," but doesn't get weird about it, and responds to emails and blog comments because, after all, it is all about you, the reader.
