Ashley-Nichole - Author

Ashley-Nichole was raised by her mother and stepmother in Ft. Myers, Florida, but it wasn't until she became a stepmom, herself, that she drew inspiration for her first children's book, Wicked Awesome Stepmother.


She is passionate about creating stories that will give a voice to children and families of non-traditional backgrounds by sharing messages of inclusion, understanding, empathy and kindness.

She loves to travel and has been to over 44 countries ''and counting.'

Her childhood passion for travel led her to pursue a career as a Flight Attendant, a position she has held with Delta Air Lines for over fifteen years.

She currently resides in Newnan, Georgia with her partner, Eric, her two step-daughters, Kendra and Cassie, and two (crazy but cute) Australian Shepherds, Rocco and Dolly.  

When she isn’t writing or traveling to far off places, you will find her thrifting, crafting or simply spending good old-fashioned quality time with her family.
