Ashley was born on the Fort Bragg base in North Carolina. Her first introduction to writing was poetry. In reflection, she’d write in the windowsill of her bedroom. At that age, she knew no stronger love than the pleasure of a good book. She grew older. She went to University and abandoned her writing for courses in biology. She cried a lot. Happiness found and reminded her that she was a writer. Her major was changed and she graduated successfully. Fate brought her to Texas where she currently resides with a rabbit named Tasha, and a box full of crystals. Her writing hasn’t left her and it doesn’t ever intend to do so again.
