Asher Black is a former literary and review editor and current story teller. His business persona keeps the lights on, so he can write, but this is who he really is.
By day, Asher is a business developer and serial entrepreneur with his own consulting and marketing company.
Asher was raised mainly in the Twin Cities (Minneapolis-St. Paul), but is really from ‘everywhere’. He lived in some dozen cities before he was 18. His father was in the Air Force and Aerospace applications. As an adult, he continued to travel: lived 3 years in Korea, did his Master’s degree through distance learning, and went to work for a major hotel corporation, rolling out software implementations in various cities – New York, Chicago, Seattle, Hawaii, Vancouver, Aruba. He recently helped launch a software application project in Oklahoma.
The Soprano-like mix of Jersey/NYC/Boston accent stuck to him like glue while working on a business sales project specializing in the Eastern Seaboard for a telecommunications company for some years, but you can hear a tinge of Minnesota in it as well some effects of time in the Southern US. Asher is “Eastern” Orthodox, vegetarian, and apolitical.
Asher’s Haunt is the web site of Asher Black. It serves as the following:
- an essay on Asher, when someone wants to begin to know him
- an ongoing story, as Asher clarifies his life in relation to the four quests mentioned in his maxims
- a mirror, so that Asher can remember who he is when he needs to
