My name is Ashley Quigley and I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa. In high-school, I developed a love for writing and English and excelled in both aspects. For college, I headed to Rhodes University where I was to study English and Journalism, but as fate would have it, I registered for a science degree and received my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in Biochemistry and Microbiology. I have a Masters Degree in Molecular Biology. After a five-year stint working in commercial laboratories I discovered that my love of English and writing was too great to ignore. So I came a full circle and reverted back to my first love, writing.
