My name’s Ashley – I am an award-winning poetess, an author, and visual artist, located in beautiful British Columbia.
I’ve been writing for nearly twenty years, mostly focusing on fiction and poetry. My favourite things to write about are the occult, religious vibes, royalty, romance, fantasy-adventure, science fiction, women, and death.

I sometimes write under my pen name, Seren J.H. Wolfe.

A Testament of Hope by Martin Luther King Jr.
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
Ashley liked a quote
“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
“You know the greatest lesson of history? It’s that history is whatever the victors say it is. That’s the lesson. Whoever wins, that’s who decides the history. We act in our own self-interest. Of course we do. Name me a person or a nation who does not. The trick is figuring out where your interests are.”
As a kid I took for granted that the history taught in school was the one and only truth. But as I get older, I began to see that history is a story continually shaped and reshaped by people with power. In my research for All the Light, I learned that as early as 1932, Joseph Goebbels, the soon-to-be Minister for Propaganda for Hitler’s Reich, was grasping the immense potential of radio for controlling narratives. Generally speaking, wireless sets were too expensive for most people in the depressed Germany in which Hitler came to power, so his new government worked with manufacturers to ...more

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
Radio: it ties a million ears to a single mouth. Out of loudspeakers all around Zollverein, the staccato voice of the Reich grows like some imperturbable tree; its subjects lean toward its branches as if toward the lips of God. And when God stops whispering, they become desperate for someone who can put things right.
One winter day in 2004, I took a train from Princeton, New Jersey to New York City. The gentleman in the seat in front of me was talking on his cellphone about the sequel to The Matrix, and we were racing along at 40 or 50 miles per hour, and as the train dove beneath the Hudson River, his call dropped. And the man got angry. He swore, rapped his phone with his knuckles, and I thought: What he’s forgetting—what we’re all forgetting, pretty much every time we expect our mobile phones to function—is that what he’s doing is a miracle. He’s using two minuscule radios crammed inside a little slab ...more
