There is more to one American soldier than meets the eye

The book really shows a side of my mind that I don’t express in everyday life.

National Guard member T.C. Ashing is a loving husband, new father, and proud American. He is currently deployed in the Middle East. One might think all of that is enough to keep him busy, but like so many military men and women, there is more to him than what is on the surface: T.C. Ashing is also a thriller author.

While deployed in Afghanistan in 2011, Ashing penned the rough draft of his first novel "The Four." Packed full of gruesome details, mystery, and themes of religious fanaticism and the dark side of wealth, the book is full of tragedy and bloodshed.

“I’ve always been fascinated by darker themed stories,” Ashing said. “The book really shows a side of my mind that I don’t express in everyday life. It was fun to explore that while authoring something that will be enjoyable to readers.”

Ashing didn’t grow up wealthy and had a rough start in life before joining the National Guard in 2009. With a daughter less than a year old, he is now on his second deployment and sees writing fiction as a positive outlet that he hopes will help support his family and bring enjoyment to the masses.

“My life experiences have definitely influenced my writing, and I’m sure they’ll continue to do so,” Ashing said. “I don’t hold back in my writing, and that will resonate with readers.”
