My name is Theodore Ashford, and I’m an author. I’ve been writing my entire life, though I first started sharing my work with others in 2006. Since then, I’ve been dedicated to learning as much as I can about the craft, and helping others to do the same.
I’m also one of the Municipal Liaisons for the Portland area for National Novel Writing Month, which I’ve been doing since 2015. It’s a whirlwind of fun, and if you haven’t tried it yet, you should!
In the summer of 2014, I spoke at TEDxYouth@Portland. My topic was “Finding Yourself,” and I spoke about my personal journey through homelessness and other hardships, and what I learned about becoming who you’re meant to be.
Aside from writing, you’ll usually find me playing with my cats, drinking tea, or (if I’m feeling ambitious) failing at something I saw that one time on Pinterest. I live with my spouse in Portland, Oregon.
