Profile Information

Who I am:
Kelly Hashway grew up reading R.L. Stein’s Fear Street novels and writing stories of her own, so it was no surprise to her family when she majored in English and later obtained a masters degree in English Secondary Education from East Stroudsburg University. After teaching middle school language arts for seven years, Hashway went back to school and focused specifically on writing. She is now the author of three young adult series, one middle grade series, and several picture books. She also writes contemporary romance under the pen name Ashelyn Drake. When she isn’t writing, Hashway works as a freelance editor for small presses as well as for her own list of clients. In her spare time, she enjoys running, traveling, and volunteering with the PTO. Hashway currently resides in Pennsylvania with her husband, daughter, and two pets.

Hashway is represented by Sarah Negovetich of Corvisiero Literary Agency.

Hi Kelly...I've tried both A's and Es; have rec'vd some nice comments but it's gone no farther. Did you choose/work with your own illustrator, or did the pub assign one for Dash?

Chapter length?  That's a hard one.  My intention is never to make it two or eight pages.  I just keep writing until the characters run out of dialogue.  Sweetness my novel has three page and nine page chapters.

My Wise Old Owl
