My name is Ashley May, and my passion is writing.  I've always had a head full of ideas, and now, with the support and encouragement of my friends, my family, and my loving husband, I'm finally ready to bring my ideas to life.

2016 has been a big year for me, and one of the things that I'm most proud of is that I 'won' the 2016 NaNoWriMo.  For those who haven't heard of it, NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month.  In those thirty days, I managed to surpass my goal of 50,000 words (I actually passed that goal on November 21st!), and realized that not only was I nowhere near finished with my book, but I felt I had to go on.  It pains me to think of not finishing telling this story.

My book, 'Golden Week', takes place in Tokyo, Japan.  My main character is the wayward son of a police superintendent, returning to Tokyo after several years in 'exile' to find his father clinging to life after his police station was bombed.  Tokyo is teetering on the edge of all-out war as yakuza gangs vie for power.  However, this war will not be fought with guns and knives, as Chinese medicine and Japanese mysticism bring a dangerous new element that traditional law enforcement can't combat.  Becoming entangled once more with the girl who caused him to be sent away from Tokyo those many years ago, he now seeks justice for his father and the city he loves.

Historically, being a patron of the arts was a privilege relegated to kings, popes, and the fabulously wealthy.  Only they could afford to frivolously support artisans and allow them to produce their works.  Today, for just $1 a month, you too can call yourself a patron of the arts.  As an official patron, you'll have access to my patron-only feed with regular project updates.

Looking for excerpts and character profiles?  Not only will you get access to the patron-only feed and its regular project updates, but this is the way you can get lots of extra materials and previews before the book comes out, as well as my rough sketches of characters.
