Author has written 8 stories for Romance, and Young Adult.

Hello! I consider myself a Young Adult Romance Fiction writer! But I am also trying to expand my stories to Young Adult in general. My biggest idol is Sarah Dessen! She is so talented and a brilliant writer! I L

Mayberry

City of Young, Beautiful Love

A beach city in Southern California. It consists of top ranked universities such as Mayberry University (a private school) and UC Mayberry (a public UC). Mayberry is famous for Mayberry Beach as well as the famous people who are from there. Almost all the characters in my stories go to a school named Flairwood High School. It appears to be the perfect place to find ideal boys!;)

Emma- She was the first character I ever wrote about. I enjoyed writing her because she was so cute and bubbly! The Shy Girl Turned Bubbly Cutie

Jake- Truly a dreamy character! I loved writing how he made Emma feel so loved, which made her even more cute! The Sweet Heart

Monica-Even though she was a real pain in the beginning, she was really fun to write! And her progression made it all the more fun! The Spoiled Brat Turned Hardworking Preppy Punk

Avan- He was a lot of fun to write about! And so was his relationship development with Monica, especially in the beginning! He really taught her a lesson! The Honest Rocker

Serena- Probably my favorite character to write about so far! She was actually inspired by my own OCD, which was probably why she was so fun to write about! I think I learned my lesson with her! Her and her relationship with Ryan was without a doubt the funnest one to write about! The OCD Organizer Turned Fun-Loving Gal

Ryan- He may actually be my favorite out of all the boys I have written about! And I think many others agree too! He was so fun and silly and a ray of sunshine! Ryan and Serena may actually be my favorite couple! The Spontaneous Surpriser

Bryn-She was one intense chick. I really liked that she was so different from the other girls, and I really liked making the story more about her journey to redemption and developing her relationship with Liam! The Party Girl Turned Redeemed Performer

LiamI really liked writing about his hardworking ways and natural way of helping Bryn. The Hardworking Believer

Kacy- A hard character to write about because I too also struggled with bullying. But I really loved the end result and her eventual relationship with Brendan, which was so cute and sweet! The Shy Scared Girl Turned Brave Girl zwho Loves Herself

Brendan- Truly a sweetie! And creative too! I really liked that him and Kacy actually helped each other grow! The Kind Artist

Ashlyn- To clear things up, her eventual language is actually her real dialect, and begins the way it does to symbolize her growing love towards zmayberry. I really liked developing her character because it is a truly important message to me. She probably had the most storylike summer. The Shallow Beauty Queen Turned Beauty Inside and Out

Corey- Now he was dreamy! I really liked that he opened Ashlyn's eyes to inner beauty! Plus, he's a musician! The Rockstar Who Reads The Pages and Not The Covers

This is the Mayberry series. I ended the way I did because I felt there needed to be some end to the circle, and "What Makes You Beautiful" was the perfect way to end the series. Also, the endings for the characters were my way of wrapping up the series, especially since I loved these character very much. I felt it was fitting to end a happy series with a happy ending.

Now, I will be on hiatus, and most likely not write another story until summer. I want to improve my writing abilities and extend my storylines to Young Adult Fiction in general instead of just romance. I also want to create a story more on the lighter side since my last 3 stories have been pretty heavy and intense.

Also, I am pleased to let you know that I'm creating a new city, which means a new series with new characters who all have a connection with each other. However, my characters from my past story will not make cameos. I want to start completely new, and I actually have a plan for these next set of characters and their connections. Also, it gets tiring figuring out how the characters from the past will fit into the story, which is why I had endings for each of them. Time to meet another group of characters who go though things we go through. I will be thinking of different ways to write a story besides my usual routine of girl has problems, she meets a boy, who sweeps her off her feet, and solves her problems. Guess my past characters just took me there. Now, I want to see what else I can write about. Now, time for a much-needed vacation!

See you all in the summer!

Ashlyn Paquette has always been one to judge and get things based on looks alone. If it's ugly and dirty, why get it? When she meets surfer boy Corey Anderson, he looks not at all like the kind of boys she finds attractive.
