Ashley J. Bailey specializes in fantasy and science fiction for young adults. A life composed of daydreaming and wonder seeking, adventure was always in their heart. It came natural, being born in the Big Apple after all. However, since they’re too much of a homebody to travel beyond their doorstep, Ashley found fulfillment in books. Their rapacious hunger for words began at the ripe age of eight after reading S. E. Hinton’s ‘Outsiders’; a huge favorite of Ashley’s.
Never has Ashley thought they could live the life of a street thug boy from Tulsa with fist flying, family drama and growing pains unlike any other. It was exciting, scary, and heartbreaking. When it was over, they had lived another life so different from their own. That’s what Ashley wishes to do with their own books. That feeling when you get to walk beside another character in another life, maybe even be that character, if only for a moment.
