Mourning the Dead
I am a graduate student from Idaho studying English Education. Along with being a forever history-buff, when I'm not writing stories, I enjoy travelling to far-off places to receive further writing inspiration. I have been published in Bottom Shelf Whiskey magazine and have an upcoming publication in Spectral Visions Press. Some of my other writing can be found at ashleyweaverauthor.wordpress.com.
