Ashley Audrain
Ashley Audrain is a Canadian author who was born in 1982 in Newmarket, York Region. A resident of Toronto, Audrain is the mother of a son named Oscar and a daughter called Waverly. In 2005, Ashley graduated from the Western University, where she undertook Media, Information and Technoculture studies. She also studied writing at the George Brown College.

Between 2013 and 2015; Ashley Audrain had a stint at Penguin Books Canada, where she worked as the company’s publicity director—her interaction with established authors therein inspired her greatly. Among the literary personalities that influenced Ashley include: American author Ann Matthews Martin, especially through her serialized The Baby-Sitters Club; French American author Leila Slimani; Canadian author Alice Ann Munro; American author Celeste Ng; and English novelist Paula Hawkin’s 2015 book The Girl on the Train.

Ashley specializes in fiction, particularly the psychological, thriller and mystery sub-genres. Ashley’s representative is agent Madeleine Milburn of Madeleine Milburn Ltd.

Ashley Audrain’s reading passion also runs in her family. Her literary work showcases her real-life view of motherhood. Ashley used to write for fun. However, her book-writing journey began 2015, when her problematic motherhood forced her to quit her publicist position at Penguin Books Canada to tend her oftentimes sickly baby. Her writing was more or less therapy, escapism, and a way to ease her energetic self.
She used to write early in the morning while her children slept. However, some sections of her first book were written in hotels, especially when babysitters came through for her or after sneaked from SickKids, where their child was under medicare care.
Prior to its publication, Ashley’s first book went through beta readers who included her husband. Her desire for a genuine preview saw her book-writing process receive a last-minute guidance from Canadian author Amy Jones—and, afterwards, publisher Nicole Winstanley’s advise—through the then newly established Flying Books School of Reading &Writing, where Ashley had sought personalized mentorship.
