Ashley Stambaugh grew up in a small town in Illinois where she and her two siblings creat-ed some of the best memories playing on their family's farm. She stayed in the southern region of the state to attend college where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree and also met her husband. Now, she and her husband live in central Illinois and spend their time creating new memo-ries with their two rambunctious boys and their comical black Pug. She also enjoys read-ing, taking long walks, and finding great bargains. When her sons are a little bit older, she has a great desire to travel with her family. Oh, and she also has a slight obsession with chocolate. When she's not busy chasing after her two young children or losing herself in a good book, you can find her curled up on her couch with her laptop, writing.
