Hi, Shalom, Peace, Salve, ummm...okay. Hi. :) For starters, I'm Ashley, although my friends sometimes call me Skyraa.Writing is, has been, and always will be, everything to me.. Other than that, I'm just...me. I believe in love above all else.At the moment I am sixteen years old, seventeen on July 1st. I have an almost scary affinity for pens, paper, and books. I am a huge admirer of Shakespeare, and my favorite author is probably John Steinbeck, of whom I have been in awe ever since reading East of Eden. My favorite books include the Harry Potter series, The Fountainhead, Atonement, Atlas Shrugged, East of Eden, and The Grapes of Wrath.
