Ashley is a TV reporter in Salt Lake City, Utah when Fantastic America begins. She is on hand to report on the solstice events when magic roars back into her world. She is in the right place at the right time several times throughout the story. The weird loose in her world finds her again and again. She changes with her changing world, until both are hardly recognizable by the end of the book. I hope you love her journey as much as I did writing it!
