Hello! For those of you who do not know me, my name is Ashley Boynes-Shuck. I am an award-winning author, blogger, social media pro, and advocate based out of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

My three internationally-published books include two nonfiction health memoirs called "Sick Idiot" and "Chronically Positive," and a post-apocalyptic fiction novel, called "To Exist." I was also a co-author on the locally-published book, "Empowered in Pittsburgh.

Additionally, I am a reporter for www.Healthline.com, where I write research-based news articles about rheumatoid arthritis and similar topics.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, family, friends, 3 dogs, and 2 cats. I am on several nonprofit boards and a member of several service

I don’t take on a ton of PR clients these days, since I have my hands full with a full-time job, a part-time contract job, a freelance news writing gig, oh — and working on several books. You know – casual.

But, I still, on occasion, do some public relations work when the mood strikes, or when I like the project. In the past, I helped out Paws N’ Claws Eyewear (and therein OptiPets and Carabiner E

“But — yeah, that was real comforting. Give the Sick Idiot a serious disease pamphlet, then send her home. Makes sense. They”
Ashley Boynes-Shuck, Sick Idiot

“That's the thing about pain. It demands to be felt”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

“Just because you had every right to feel sorry for yourself didn’t mean you ever took the opportunity to do so. In fact, sometimes I was sure that the reason people stared at you with your crutches and wheelchair had nothing to do with your disabilities, and everything to do with the fact that you had abilities they only dreamed of.”
Jodi Picoult, Handle with Care

“She always forgot how pain was so upsetting. Cruel. It hurt your feelings. You just wanted it to stop, please, right now.”
Liane Moriarty, What Alice Forgot

“But I think some people wait forever, and only at the end of their lives do they realize that their life has happened while they were waiting for it to start.”
Jess Walter, Beautiful Ruins

“Of pain you could wish only one thing: that it should stop. Nothing in the world was so bad as physical pain. In the face of pain there are no heroes.”
George Orwell, 1984
