A bookworm since the moment she learned to read, while 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.) When she’s not engrossed in the world of her next story, you’ll find her drinking copious amounts of tea and hanging out with her husband, two kids, and two aggressively affectionate cats.
