Please welcome Ashlynn Monroe to Ramsey's Reviews. Ashlynn is one of the many talented authors we have visiting during the 2nd Annual Halloween Bash. It's nice to have you here Ashlynn. Thank you for taking the time and sharing some of your news with us today. 
Tell us your latest news. Do you have any current projects your working on?
I’ve been contracted for my romantic paranormal Christmas story: A Daddy for Christmas. Silver Publishing will release my fun romance about a social worker, three little boys, and a werewolf this December.

When and Why did you begin writing?
I’ve been writing since I was thirteen but didn’t have the courage to pursue publication until my thirtieth birthday. I guess that’s how I dealt with the big 3-0 *wink*. I first tried to find an agent but was told my work was too short, so I researched and found e-publishing. I sent my first novella, Hidden Magic, to Wild Horse Press and was delighted to be contracted by the publisher a very short time later. I was contracted at the end of February 2010 and on June 4, 2010, I became a published writer. This is a much cherished anniversary date and this year I took my kids out to a special supper to celebrate. It was a birthday of sorts for me as I use a pen name. I’ve been blessed with finding multiple publishers who are willing to believe in me. It’s expanded my friend base and my knowledge about the craft I love. The first person who bought Hidden Magic changed my life and filled a hole in me I didn’t even know existed. Whoever you are, thank you so much, everyone who buys my work gives me a wonderful gift and they don’t even know it. This has enriched my life tremendously. I’m just a working mom struggling to make ends meet and make life better for me and my kiddos. Having the validation the people enjoy my creativity really gives me a special joy that helps me get through the tough times. 
 
Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?
My daydreams, nightmares, music, but most just randomly pop into my brain.
What do you think makes a good horror story?
A believable yet terrifying tale, any horror story that makes me think “duh” isn’t one I enjoy.
What is your favorite scary movie or book?
The Stand, by Steven King, Considering how sickly my kids and I are we’d have been the first ones done for lol.
What makes you interested in the genre your write?
I love romance, but anything unique such as werewolves just enhance the story and the power to create so much more that I can’t imagine what I’d do if I couldn’t write paranormal or urban fantasy again.
When you were a child, what creature or story scared you the most? And did it propel your creative muse to write about it later? 
The Headless Horseman, The idea of a body without a head really freaks me out. I often had nightmares about him and still cringe at the idea of reading Sleepy Hollow again. Honestly, he hasn’t inspired anything specific.
Do you remember ever coming up with anything so wild that you scared yourself, leaving you to wonder where that came from?
I’ve had a few scenes that scared me badly enough to stop writing them. I’m a pansy lol.
Where do you as an author draw the line on gory description and/or erotic content?
Erotic content I’m not shy about, but I think gory should stop at any description that turns the reader’s stomach.
Could you share some of your blurbs or exerts with us? 
I’m so excited for my October 30th release of Don’t Take Candy from Werewolves!
Here’s the blurb.
Jenica Bradley isn’t ordinary. She’s the seventh daughter of a seventh daughter and one of the last of the Atlantian race. Now, to save her people, she must complete a pact her people made long ago, and mate with the Alpha-male of the local werewolves.
Malone Luna returns to lead his father’s pack. He soon finds himself with a confusing need to protect the little Atlantian witch—bitch—who’s to be his mate, but all she wants from him is freedom. He’s pretty much sure he can give her that, but not before he’s had her.
This story was a blast to write and the title still makes me smile. This is a fun Halloween tale of courage, duty, and passion.

Where can your fans go to find more information about you and your books?
Is there anything else additional you would like to share with your readers?
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. Everyone gets to be someone else for one day. This year I hope you’ll go wild and be everything you’ve dreamed to be. If you decide to take some me time after you take the kiddos out trick-or-treating I hope you stop at https://spsilverpublishing.com/ and download a copy of my book.
I hope that if you haven’t read me you’ll take a look at my back-list, but Don’t Take Candy from Werewolves is one of the very best things I’ve written. I love this story!
