Ashley is a young twenty-something who has been spinning tales since she discovered that her wild imagination and love of storytelling could make a career. An adventurous dreamer to the core, she hopes that her stories will allow others to join in her fantastical escapades. She is native to bookstores, coffee shops, the kitchen, and Southern California. She also has an unexplainable aversion to clowns and describes outlines as a “proverbial noose.” Her first book Rising Shadows is available on ebook formats.
