A LITTLE ABOUT ME

I'm Ash. Nice to meet you.

An Army brat turned enlisted soldier turned military spouse, I've had the unique opportunity to interact and live with many different kinds of people and cultures in places all over the world. 

Intrigued by the human experience and the stories they have to tell, my love of words has driven me to write within any medium I can. I've been published for short fiction and personal essay. I've ghostwritten and been bylined for interviews and how-to articles. I blog, participate in writing challenges with friends, and engage with others across various social media platforms.


Whatever my audience, I hope the words I provide satisfy the reader but leave them wanting more.​

 

MY SMALL PART

There's a story here somewhere.

My love of story extends beyond what I'm personally writing. Books are my passion, whether I'm able to hand someone a book they've been looking for, help a writer find just the right words when nothing seems to be working, or facilitate a connection between author and their audience.
