Her debut novel, a young adult fantasy entitled "The Charismatics," can be found on Amazon or through her website at www.ashleyrcarlson.com. Ashley is obsessed with Yelping to find local restaurants, fostering animals from nearby shelters, and the Real Housewives of...anywhere. She also loves to hear from you!
