About Me

Profile Smaller

Hello! My name is Ashlee Craft, & I’m an author, musician, artist, actress, cartoonist, director, songwriter, photographer, filmmaker, poet, & an all around creative person. Being happy is the meaning of my life, & I try to do as much as I can everyday to make my life awesome, beautiful, magical, lovely, & amazing.

I am the author of three fiction novels (Dark Hours; Pressure Point; Paper Soul), four YA/Juvenile fiction books (Strange Occurrences; Summer Hayes & the Idol of Neuworth; Samantha; Shipwrecked), four illustrated children’s books (Blossom the Elephant; The Adventures of Sally the Kiwi; Blossom the Elephant Makes a Friend; Sunny Days, Rainy Days), eighteen poetry books (Spring; Winter; Autumn; Summer; Four Seasons; New Life, New Day; Four Roads to Freedom; Reflections in the Green Triangle; Dancing in the Sunlight; The Allure of a Summer Evening; Little Bird; A Thousand Cranes – Volume 1; A Thousand Cranes – Volume 2; A Thousand Cranes – Volume 3; A Thousand Cranes – Volume 4; Christmas Poems; A Thousand Cranes – Volume 5), three juvenile non-fiction books (Manatees; Giant Pandas; Sloths), and three art books (Summer Poetry Art Book; Art Poems – Volume 1; Art Poems – Volume 2). All of my books are available for purchase on Amazon.com, the iBookstore, & Smashwords. When I write, it’s like I can’t type fast enough to keep up with all my ideas, & when I read, I continue falling deeper in love with words.

I am a musician and have released three singles, which feel-good pop/rock songs. My first single is The Strength of Hope, which is available for purchase on iTunes & Amazon MP3. I produced and directed the music video for this song, and this can be found on YouTube. My other singles are Shooting Star & You’ll Never Own Me. Currently, I’m very close to completing & releasing my debut album, which will be called Fields of Destiny.

I have released three short films, Golden Ladders to the Stars & Beyond, Gifts of the Heart, and Yellow Balloons. I wrote, directed, and acted in these films, which are available on YouTube.

I believe that art is a journey. I’m an avid photographer & artist, & I have published my photos and works of art on sites such as Tumblr, DeviantArt, & Zazzle. You can check out my art blog & my photography blog, where I post my newest photos & paintings. I’ve also just gotten into cartooning, & sometime soon I’ll probably make a cartoon blog as well.

I hope you have a fantastic day! 🙂

  4. Hello! I just purchased ‘Olinguito’ to take to a school in Ecuador. Has it been translated into Spanish? I’m excited for the kids to learn more about yet another of their country’s treasures. I work in a Natural History Museum and we take North Carolina teachers to Ecuador. If a Spanish version is not available, is it okay with you if I translate it, just one book for one school on the Ecuadorian paramo? Thanks for writing the book. One of the scientists on the Olinguito’s ‘discovery team’ is at our Museum.

    1. Thank you so much for contacting me & for purchasing my book! You’re so welcome & I’m thrilled by what you will be doing with it. No, it has not been translated into Spanish, but you are more than welcome to translate the copy into Spanish so you can share it with the children there. I hope they enjoy it & that it helps grow their love for the natural world. Have a fantastic day! 🙂
