Hi, I'm Ashley, an international bestselling author, a #1 Amazon bestselling author, award-winning producer, and writer originally from Los Angeles, California. I have over eight years of entertainment and digital media experience and twelve years experience as a professional writer. In 2019, I founded LA Writing Coach with a simple mission: to help writers fast-track their writing projects and create rewarding writing careers.
As a producer, my first feature film, Back Roads starring Juliette Lewis and Alex Pettyfer, premiered as an Official Selection in the Spotlight Narrative section at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival and was an Official Selection of the 2018 Rhode Island International Film Festival, Heartland Film Festival, and Stockholm Independent Film Festival. Back Roads won Best Feature at RIIFF and Best Drama Feature at SIFF.
I have written and produced content for a multitude of screen sizes and audiences. I’m a seasoned writer and storyteller who loves crafting thrilling narratives and captivating audiences through the written word.
I have five years of international work experience, and experience crafting narratives and content strategies that span platforms and audiences. My past work includes heading up the writing department of a family entertainment brand, writing for major commercial brands, a London-based singer-songwriter, talent management professionals, and media clients.
In my current role at Upturn Productions, I create, develop, and source original scripts for film and television and have been behind the company's first two major success stories, including its first feature film, Back Roads, based on the New York Times best selling novel by Tawni O’Dell, starring actor/director Alex Pettyfer, Jennifer Morrison, Juliet Lewis, Nicola Peltz, and Robert Patrick, and The Godmother, a TV movie optioned by HBO.
