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.

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.
"Since it's Canada Day, it seemed appropriate to recommend a novel by one of my countrymen--er women: Late Nights on Air by Elizabeth Hay. This tale fed my long-held yen to visit the northern/Arctic region of Canada, as it tells the story…"
"It's great to read about the writing path to your memoir. I'm so glad you decided to write it yourself because your stories I've seen so far are deep, poignant and funny. No ghost writer would be able to do that for you.…"
