Writes about: Lists
M. Asher Cantrell is the pen name of M. Asher Cantrell because he doesn’t understand how pseudonyms work. Ashe was born in Nashville, TN, and received a B.A. in English/Writing from Middle Tennessee State University. He now lives near Nashville in an apartment that is smaller than the inside of many automobiles. He has been featured on Cracked.com, Film School Rejects, and Playboy's safe-for-work entertainment blog, The Smoking Jacket. He is also writing a book, The Book of Word Records, for Adams Media. You can contact him (work offers welcome) by e-mailing him or, if you’re lucky and within about a 100 yard radius, you can try shouting his name loudly.
