I read a lot. I have opinions, always. And I am a self-identified feminist. I don't like 'Jane Eyre,' and it's best to get that out in the open from the beginning.
Hi, I'm Ashley. I'm an artist and theatrical designer living in Birmingham, AL. Reading has always been a passion of mine, starting from the time I was sitting on my Dad's lap as he read Dr. Seuss to my little brother and myself. I read everything, all genres, fiction and non-fiction and there are only two books I've ever come across that I just couldn't finish. And one day I will pick up Vanity Fair to finish it and that number will be down to one.
I am a pretty outspoken feminist, and sometimes become frustrated with the depiction of women in literature and pop culture. Also, I know we all benefit from inclusive and diverse storytelling. I am a devout believer that the people hold the power, that consumers drive the market, and if we just demand better characters, publishers will have to comply.
