After years of working for a media/entertainment start-up in Europe in 2014, Ashley was reaching burnout. She had set aside her dream to become an authorpreneur and write her own books in order to write for others. To pursue her dream, Ashley quit her day job, wrote her first book, Blood, Ink & Fire, a novel featuring a future world where books are forbidden and quickly secured a publisher. She then sold the film and television rights. Soon after she published Blood, Ink & Fire in 2015, her book became an international bestseller on Amazon and later became a #1 bestseller in 2019. Ashley made a successful career in entertainment as a writer, executive and producer where she helped originate and sell TV projects and won multiple awards in independent film.
