Soulless Series… really?

Ashley, tell us where you were born

Provo, Utah but I moved to Anaheim, California when I was only 3. I joined the military when I was 18 and have lived all around the US and even in England. I’ve moved 10 times. So, home is wherever I’m living at the moment.

What is the most difficult thing about being an author?
Sitting down at my computer. I recently discovered dictation software and have been trying to dictate my books while walking or at the gym. One time, a guy got on the elliptical machine next to me, heard me talking to myself, and then got off. I laughed. I thought it might bother me that people think I’m crazy, but I actually get a good laugh from it now.

Who has made the greatest difference for you as a writer?
My dad. He always believed I could do anything. He is also the first person in line to tell me to rewrite things. He’s taught me that if it is worth doing then you might as well do it right.
Who or What inspired you to write this book?
Actually, I wrote the second book in the series first but decided that story needed more background so I wrote Without Faith (the first book in the Soulless Series). The second book in the series is called The Girl Without a Soul. That book sprang from the question, “What would it be like if you could see souls and saw that you didn’t have one?” I loved writing it and found that the world I created needed more explanation.

Tell us more about it.
The heart of the story is about Michael, a 17 year old half-angel. His family comes from a long line of Demon Hunters, but Michael is disenchanted with the lifestyle. He wants something more in his life. Then he meets Payton Matthews, the first female to ever try to become a Demon Hunter Operative. Michael is to assess her abilities and offer a recommendation to the Demon Hunter Council. 
Payton’s smart, sassy, tough, and can see the future. During her Assessment, Payton has a vision and convinces Michael to help her save a boy from a group of demons.

Payton reveals that war is on the horizon and the Veil that holds the demons back from this world is growing thin.
