Ashley Wilda lives in Richmond, Virginia. She particularly enjoys young adult fiction and poetry but loves any work whose words sing and whisper magic to the reader. She believes that a good story should capture the intense emotions of the human experience and throw a lifeline of hope to the reader, screaming that no one is alone, and love is always worth fighting for, even when it is not simple. In addition to books, she loves rock climbing, exploring the outdoors, and spending time with her husband and pup.
