Heather Ashbury Interview!

Welcome back to another Monday Morning Author Interview. Today we have a new voice in the field of fantasy/paranormal, Heather Ashbury. She’s the first-time author of More Than Human, a planned 3-book series. She lives on a quiet farm in New Mexico with many different animals ranging from turtles, chickens, dogs, cats, fish, a gecko, and more! She’s a practicing herbalist always yearning to learn and in her spare time (when I have any) she enjoys photography.

But why listen to me? Let’s hear from her!

Q: When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

A: Pretty much as soon as I could read more complex things I started making my own stories. By 11 I was writing poetry and short stories. In high school I was able to further explore my creative writing and during a special one-week “project period” I succeeded in writing twenty-seven poems.

Q: When did you write your first book and how old were you?

A: More Than Human is the first book that I have written. I started actually writing the story itself at 27 and officially published at 31. Let that serve as a reminder to anyone who doubts that it is never too late to write your book and never too late to publish.

Q: Do you like to create books for adults?

A: This books series is geared more towards young adults or new adults, but I’ve had a surprising amount of readers in their 30s-40s fall in love with my book and even one fan in their 70s!
