Between playing Barbies for thousands of hours as a child, listening to radio drama s, taking part in plays with her siblings or read aloud s of the Chronicles of Narnia, storytelling has always been at the centre of Ashley s world Eventually her own flavour of storytelling compelled her fingers to glue themselves to the keyboard, and over a decade later, Ashley made her literary debut with Present History At the heart of it all, she desires not only to entertain her readers with rich plots and characters, a good dose of suspense and don t let s forget that romance it is her desire to shed a light on the pain life throws us, oftentimes resulting in grief of one form or another, and learn to process it in its raw, sometimes very ugly and undignified state, pressing toward healing and living to our greatest, most candid and beautiful potential.
