About Ashley

Hey, I’m Ashley, the creator of the Novelist plugin.

I started out as a simple book blogger on nosegraze.com. I quickly started working with other book bloggers to create custom designs for their sites. This led to me building my first WordPress plugin, the Ultimate Book Blogger plugin.

As time went on, I started working with authors to build their custom website and I found myself creating ways to help my clients manage their books more easily. I wanted them to be able to easily add new books on their own without having to contact me each time. This would save them time, money, and headache.

But more importantly, I wanted them to easily be able to add those new books using the same style as their other book pages. When you’re not a coder, that can be tricky. It’s easy to accidentally mess up formatting!

That’s when Novelist was born.
