Growing up in an area of western Kentucky called “Possum Trot,” Ashley became fluent in Japanese during college and moved to Tokyo, Japan after graduating. After spending a decade in a high-pressure, Japanese language-only corporate environment, he recently quit his job to focus on writing the Kentucky Blood series as well as an unrelated alternate reality series. He shall either become homeless or a huge success–there can be no in-between.
Ashley now spends his time re-learning how to read, write and edit properly in the English language.
It still eludes him.
