Ashley Rescot is a musician by trade. A third-generation musician who started playing violin at 2.

Her pianist grandmother was also a writer and taught her how to write.

Ashley’s always been fascinated by anything that has to do with music and/or how it intersects with writing or language and literature.

And this is what has my attention.
