Captivated by tales of love and tragedy, Ashlyn is what you would call a Dark Romantic. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Edgar Allan Poe, Mary Shelley, and other Gothic writers, her stories often feature eternal love, shattered souls, and madness. Oh, and murder. Lots of murder.
When she's not making up stories in her head, Ashlyn is usually journaling (like all good writers, she has a bit of a stationery addiction) or spending an inordinate amount of time researching obscure topics. A night owl through and through, coffee and tea make it possible for her to function like a quasi-normal human.
Ashlyn lives in Northern Illinois with her patient husband, fearless daughter, and a house full of animals. The degree on the wall says she's a historian, but she spends her days as a first responder.
