Some people know from an early age exactly what they are meant to do with their lives. I could never seem to settle on one thing, so in the end, I didn't!

I am an anthropologist, professional painter, non-profit founder, and now, a fiction writer. The thread that connects all these interests, is people and places, and the importance of intentionally getting to know those different from ourselves.

Because of my line of work, I get to meet diverse people, travel to remote parts of my country, South Africa, and engage in social issues that deeply affect people, and motivate them to behave the way they do. I hope my writing can open up a new way of thinking and understanding situations that are very far from our own experiences.



Down at Jika Jika Tavern

Ashling McCarthy Down at the jika jika tavern


When student anthropologist, Nonhle Ngubane returns home to Zululand, she is faced with the unimaginable: her father, a game ranger, is arrested for rhino poaching: a crime she knows he’d never commit.

However, Nonhle is unaware that a dark plot of revenge, between a conflicted traditional healer and a slippery rhino poaching boss, is unfolding. When the evidence against her father starts to stack up, she takes matters into her own hands, setting in motion a chain of events that finds her fighting not only for her father’s innocence but for her life.
