About Ashley M. Stephenson:
Ashley M. Stephenson was born and raised in Northeast Ohio but was never content with staying in one place for long. That sense of wanderlust led her to Chicago, Illinois, Washington, D.C., and eventually to the lights and bustle of New York City.
She is a legal professional with over a decade of experience and who always rises to the next challenge. Ashley's unique perspective for development inspires those around her.
She is a member of several professional organizations, from the local Bar Associations, Mindfulness in Law Society, Military Spouse J.D. Network, to the Alexander Hamilton Awareness Society.
Her creative side emerged after she began to understand how important wellness is to each of us. Her work has been featured in the Huffington Post and several legal industry magazines. Her passion for all she does has landed her speaking events at community colleges as well as societal groups in various cities.
An advocate for living a balanced lifestyle, Ashley spends much of her free time cultivating resilience. She enjoys traveling with her husband and is constantly in search of inspiration in those new and exotic locations she discovers. A woman on a quest for constant learning and growth, Ashley is a shining example for others to follow.
What inspires you to write?
A desire to help others and bring awareness to concepts and issues is a strong motivator for me.
Tell us about your writing process.
I tend to do a substantial amount of research, while jotting down notes and drafting an outline. I'm known to have several legal pads, notebooks, and sticky notes around me while writing! When I sit down to write, I enjoy having an array of different music playing, as well.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
We're all going through unprecedented times and could all benefit from learning and developing resilience. I was inspired by the clients, mentors, family, friends, and acquaintances who, in some way, provided me the opportunity to observe resilience first-hand. Their experiences, stories, and drive offered me deeper insight to the subject matter.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I feel that self-published eBooks will dominate various niches and will be irrelevant in others. My hope is that big book chains and large print publishing companies stay in business and do not go bankrupt, while also giving small indie bookstores a chance to thrive.
What genres do you write?: Non-fiction, Self-Help, Self-Development
What formats are your books in?: Both eBook and Print
