Welcome! I’m Ashley, the Pastime Inquirer. I was born on the bayou, trained in historical research and writing, and currently living in Louisiana’s capital where I am pursuing my freelance writing career. History, architecture, museums, books, and arts & crafts are just a few of my favorite things to write about.

On this site, you will find my freelance writing services, a blog with book reviews from my personal reading list, and a gallery with information on my paper quilling artwork. Please explore and contact me with any questions or comments. I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
