Freelance Services

History Writer & Book Reviewer

Welcome! I’m Ashley, the Pastime Inquirer. I have a great passion for reading, learning, and sharing my knowledge.

I am a versatile, reliable, and efficient professional with experience managing multiple projects and deadlines. A museum professional with seven years experience, trained in historical research and writing, I focus on interpreting history for a broad public audience.

An extensive part of my graduate work involved writing book reviews. You can read a few of my reviews on books by self-published authors here and here.

My training and skills can easily translate to other subjects and niches by providing informative and engaging content to help you achieve your business needs. Contact me with your project ideas and for pricing quotes. I look forward to discussing your next project with you!
