Ashley seeks out authors that are intersectional feminists, LGBT+ folks, PoC, and more broadly, people trying to help other people with their art.

She’s especially interested in diverse protagonists, characters exploring their sexuality, and projects with a social justice bent.

She always looking for narrative nonfiction with a distinctive voice and a perspective you haven’t heard before.
