When all the other kids wanted to be zookeepers and astronauts, Ashley dreamed of being a writer. (Okay, so she had her days of wanting to be a zookeeper/veterinarian/any job involving animals, but books were always her best friends.) You’ll usually find her engrossed in the world of her next middle grade novel while drinking copious amounts of tea and hanging out with her husband, two kids, and two aggressively affectionate cats.
