Ash Litton is a writer and lover of sci-fi, fantasy, and all things fictional. She is the author of No Signal, Thoroughbred, Evening Hallow, Comeuppance, Cabover Cabaret, and No Diet, No Surgery, No Sweat, and works on other Appalachian Dream Tales between her ongoing novel projects.
When she's not writing, she's drawing, and when she's not doing either of those, she's dreaming up new projects to work on.

She attended West Virginia University, where she studied the English language before returning home to her family in rural West Virginia.
