Ashley M. Baldon is a professional Polynesian dancer and substitute teacher living in sunny Southern California. She has a B.A. in English with an emphasis in Literature and Language. Her first love is writing, and in no particular order also loves reading, dancing, and martial arts and has nothing but contempt for cold weather that overstays its welcome. She dreams of one day making enough money to be called a starving writer. In addition to several severely short stories and poems published in various twitter-zines she has also been published in the haiku anthology "An Island of Egrets."
