Open Book Toronto

openbooktorontoI have something to share. It’s a little essay I wrote for Open Book Toronto’s  At the Desk series: where writers are asked to share their creative process and the workspaces that inspire them.

Interesting to me, was the sting of shyness that took over as I went on to reveal that my studio doubles as my bedroom. Who knew I had such an underlying insecurity with this topic? Is it because I equate professionalism with a studio separate from one’s sleeping quarters? Perhaps. Well, whatever it was, I’m now over it and proud to show off my space.

I’d like to give a special thanks to Grace O’Connell for including me in this series.

What do 3 cats + 2 dogs + a parrot equal? That's right: zero productivity for Ashley. My parents are coming back from their trip tomorrow and our three weeks of dog sitting are coming to an end. It's been exhausting, but they will be missed. After much rearranging, the kids from "Birthdays Around the World" have all managed to fit in one frame! 🙌

One of the many pieces I'll have on display at the Northern District Library this October. More details to follow. ✨Here's a peek inside my new book out this fall! ✨

Thanks to my editor @katie.scott2, designer Julia Naimska and author @margrietruurs for all of their hard work on this, and everyone else at @kidscanpress. Just a reminder that it's still watermelon seed spitting season! .
