Author Ashley Lavering
A nomad at heart, Ashley currently claim Nevada as her home. She has a wonderful husband and two young children that put up with her “writing time.” When she’s not pondering a spell that will magically calm the ferocious winds that plague the air around her, you can find her, with notepad in hand, frantically jotting down ideas in those short moments between caring for her girls and working full time at the Elko Institute for Academic Achievement.
Charging into adventures and discovering something new has always been a passion of hers, but as a teenager she used to run screaming from a reading or writing assignment. Looking back, the irony isn’t lost on her. Now you can’t catch her without a book in hand or an open word document. Every time a new idea pops into her mind her heart races and her hand twitches to write it. In that moment, she has her writer's high and prays it will sustain her through thousands of hours of revision.
