About Ash 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 writes mystery thrillers, science fiction, fantasy, and romance. A Solitary Man is a 2016 Rainbow Award Winner and Sleight of Heart is a 2016 Rainbow Award Finalist. You can also find Ash’s award-winning Young Adult novels under C. Kennedy. Writing as C. Kennedy, Omorphi was a runner up in the 2014 Rainbow Awards for Best LGBT Young Adult Fiction, Elpída took 2nd place in the 2017 Rainbow Awards for Best Gay Young Adult Fiction and was a Runner Up for Best Gay Fiction, and Slaying Isidore's Dragons was a finalist in the 2015 Rainbow Awards for Best LGBT Young Adult Fiction.
