Ashley Ream is a former journalist and the author of two acclaimed novels. Born and raised in a working-class town near Kansas City, she has since moved all over the country, doing stints in Florida, Texas, Los Angeles and Wisconsin. She currently lives in a small house in the big woods outside of Seattle.
Her debut novel, Losing Clementine, which sold at auction, was a Barnes & Noble debut pick, a Sutter Home Book Club pick and was short-listed for the Balcones Fiction Prize. Her latest, The 100 Year Miracle, was named an Amazon Best Book of the Month and selected as the Whidbey Island all-island read. The Seattle Times called it “an absorbing story with an arresting premise,” and The Charlotte Observer said, “Every page holds little treasures of observation.”
She and her books have appeared in L.A. Weekly, Los Angeles Magazine, Bust Magazine, the Toronto Star, The Seattle Times and the Kansas City Star, among many others.
“Where is all this going to lead? To places only Ashley Ream’s boundless imagination could envision.” —Toronto Star
