Introductions & Welcomes / Greetings from a Southern Belle...ish.
« on: October 26, 2012, 11:04:13 am »
Hi there! My name is Ashley Torbeck, and I'm a writer from Kentucky. While I don't own a physical Kindle, I have the app on my Android phone that I use a LOT, and I love it. I've been an avid reader of many genres since I was a munchkin. I have a deep love for books, especially Stephen King and anything with vampires, witches, fairies, that has a strong female lead, or that's set in the future. Recently, I found a new love and appreciation for indie authors and their books, so between my Kindle app and my other reading device (which will remain anonymous!) I have more indie books than I can read, and I'm constantly adding to my collection.

As far as who I am, I'm a 29 year old quirky, bubbly, possibly slightly insane homemaker trying to make a living making my dream of being a writer come true. I'm not shy, though I can be moody at times.  ;)  I love music from the 90's and early 00's, I'm a sucker for horror movies, my favorite holiday is Halloween, I absolutely adore autumn, and my favorite color is pink. Yes, pink. Not that soft, girlie, cutesy pink, but a bold, bright, deep pink, that pairs well with black. I've lived nearly my whole life in Kentucky, which has gifted me with a thick southern accent and a talent for cooking. I spent five years near Detroit, MI, which was where I learned how to drive like Mario Andretti-I swear, up there you learn how to drive like them quick or you don't get behind the wheel, those folks do NOT mess around! It was nice to spend some time there, but I missed home, so my hubby and I moved back. My husband and I have been married for a little over 3 1/2 years, but this Christmas Day marks the 10 year anniversary of our first date. We live in Louisville now with our two cats, Blizzard and Luna, who at the moment are gnawing on one another and making horrible sounds.

I just recently published my first book, Daughters of Night: Sanctuary, which is the first installment of the series. The second installment, Daughters of Night: Possession, is anticipated to be out just before Christmas. I don't want to promote it here, but I'll be posting more info on the book and the series in the Bazaar section of this site, so if you'd like to know more, that's the place to look.

If you want to know more about me, just ask. Like I mentioned before, I'm not shy! I look forward to connecting with some awesome readers and fellow authors very soon. Thanks for stopping by, and happy reading!
