An Urban Fantasy from Ashley Mayer

Ashley Mayer's novel

On her website, Ashley Mayer, a 2006 Washington and Lee graduate, lists her jobs: movie-store clerk, trade-show-booth slinger, receptionist, executive assistant, travel-magazine journalist, public-relations writer and marketing consultant. Missing from that list is author. But now Ashley can add that item, having recently published Temp: An Accidental Fairytale, which is described as an urban fantasy.

The book features Jackson Belle Bee Elders, a promising Magical Sciences graduate stuck in a temp job assigning creatures to magical staffing work. But then she takes a holiday weekend that changes everything. You can read more about Ashley’s book, and Ashley, on her website, A.E. Mayer.com, where you can also find links to purchase Temp.

And if you want to read more of Ashley’s writing, you need to check out her blog, which is worth the mouse click. Some of her recent entries range from her search for glass marbles to homemade Halloween costumes, and from consumer behavior at Costco to Googling “underwear.”

    Thanks for the coverage, W&L! Being part of alumni news gives me such a thrill. This is an outstanding write-up that’s going in the Mayer Manor scrapbook for sure.
