ARIA Expo Blog Tour, Ashley Richer
Mike: Hi, Ashley. I’m happy to have yet another Association of Rhode Island Author (ARIA) to introduce to my Overlords fan base. As with the others, we’re going to do an old fashioned interview. Here we go!
Mike: Ashley, please introduce yourself to my Overlords fans with a little information about you and where you’re from.
Ashley: My name is Ashley Richer. I was born and raised in Rhode Island. I have lived in Narragansett for 12 years and don’t plan on ever leaving.
Mike: What are you working on these days and what’s the current status of that project?
Ashley: I am in the final stages if self publishing my first children’s book of a series. I have been writing the, “Tyler’s TALL Tales” series for 10 years now. It is a dream come true to be publishing, “Chasing the Moon” which is the first book in the series!
Mike: Can you tell the audience what inspires you to write?
Ashley: My high school English teacher inspired me to pursue my writing. She is now my editor for my books! However, my biggest inspiration the past four years has been overcoming medical odds. When I was 24 I survived a rare medical scare, which put life into perspective. It was at that time that I decided to publish my books.
Mike: What genre do you enjoy writing the most?
Ashley: I am known as the kid whisperer… all things kid related is what I excel at. So, writing children’s books with tons of adventure and imagination is definitely my favorite genre. However, I am writing a young adult novel too!
Mike: Any upcoming projects we should now about?
