Author Profile: Avery K. Tingle

Avery Tingle




Avery K. Tingle was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. After a tumultuous, hellraising youth, he set out on an eleven-year sojourn across the United States during which time he was homeless, searching for identity and dodging every responsibility he could.

He eventually settled down (temporarily) in the Midwest, where he (unexpectedly) became a top-level salesman for the telecommunications company known as Centurylink. After two and a half years, he returned to his native West Coast. He is now a full-time author, blogger, freelance ghostwriter and occasional troublemaker.

Avery is a Domestic Abuse and Anti-Bullying Advocate and Counselor. He is currently in a relationship with the woman of his dreams and lives in the Moses Lake area. He enjoys video games, graphic novels (both reading and writing) movies, martial arts, and cooking. He has four children in total and says he writes to get the voices out of his head. His first novelette Universal Warrior: Before Red Morning, is a fantasy that revolves around how the war between Heaven and Hell began.

Avery’s current work is called Universal Warrior: The Ring of Asarra. It is a story about choice, consequence and self-acceptance, set against the backdrop of mankind’s first brush with extinction.

I recently had the pleasure of reading The Ring of Asarra. Fantasy not being a routine flower growing in my garden, I didn’t know quite what to expect. What I found was an extremely well-written and compellingly moral story almost entirely free of spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors (very much unlike my own).

Mr. Tingle is definitely an indie author to watch, and to follow, with a very distinctive voice and style. I for one, am looking forward with great anticipation to future works.


Thanks Avery. Keep up the great work.
