Carley Ash fell in love with the written word during the fourth grade. One of her favorite memories is of ordering books through the school and having them arrive in the mail. Her first summer job was at the local library, and it was there, standing amongst the book-lined shelves, that she realized the power of literacy. In 1996 Carley graduated from Boise State University. In 2004 she transitioned from writing detailed journals to writing women’s fiction. Thanks to a fortuitous typo in 2009, she met the hero in her life, who she will marry this summer. Carley lives in Boise, Idaho. She still gets excited when books arrive in the mail.
