About Ayse


Thanks for stopping by. I’m a Londoner born and raised. There are lots of authors in my family so I feel that becoming a writer was my destiny. 

As a child, without fail every night my Dad read us bedtime stories. Generally, Aesop’s, and Hans Christian Anderson fairy tales, but he also told us colourful stories of Sultans, Emirs, and Maharanis. Daytime was for stories of Prophecy, and the mystical world of the Jinn. Whereas, Mum took us to the library and made sure we always had a book in hand during the summer holidays. I realise now that both my parents cultivated a love of reading in us. 

After university, I was employed by leading technology brands. My work led me overseas on business trips where I was lucky enough to experience vastly different cultures and countries.

After I fell in love and married, my husband and I moved to Istanbul, where I really had a chance to put pen to paper.

The works in progress link houses my project plans, so you can see what ideas I plan to publish next.
