About Quenntis Ashby

Hey there!

Welcome to this brief dance of words, partner. My name is Quenntis, and I’m an ingenious invention of my mother’s (with a little help from my dad, of course). I was born, bred, and buttered way back in 1976.

I’m a leap year Aquarian from South Africa who likes to jump off the page, onto the stage, and into the airy heights of your imagination. I retired from a performing arts career when the 2003 SARS epidemic ended a Cats Musical tour in Shanghai, China.

My love of the stage influences my work as a creative artist, a teacher, a poet, and a writer living in Taiwan.

I’m married and have three lucky children in various stages of awesomeness. I adore them all.

I spend my days teaching, my evenings with my family, and my weekends dancing with words.

I love being around interesting people who are as curious about the world as I am. Even though I have completed degrees in Drama & English, Classical Ballet & Dance Musicology, and Creative Writing (Poetry), I am eager to learn more.

I’m dancing with words one step at a time by creating one email, one blog, one poem, one story, one novel, one YouTube video, one podcast, and one day at a time.
