About the Author
Ashtyn Newbold was introduced to the Regency period early on, and the writing soon followed. Fascinated by the society, scenery, and chivalry, she wrote her first novel, Mischief and Manors, receiving a publishing offer before high school graduation. Ashtyn is currently attending college with plans to obtain a degree that will help her improve in writing and creativity. In her spare time, she enjoys baking, singing, spoiling her dog, spending time with friends and family, and dreaming of the day she’ll travel to England.
Author Residence: Lehi, UT
1. Who or what inspired you to become an author?
It was a mixture of things. I've always loved reading and loved stories, but in high school I was in a writing class that made me realize how much I loved it. My favorite genre to read at the time was Regency romance, so I started writing my first book.
2. Who are some of your favorite authors? Do these authors inspire your own writing?
Many authors inspired me to write Regency romance, including Jane Austen, Sarah Eden, Julianne Donaldson, Jennifer Moore, and others. :)
3. What top 5 books do you currently have on your TBR pile?
I have not had much time for reading lately, so I'm excited to read some good ones this summer! I like just going to my local library and browsing until I find the next book I want to read. I don't plan ahead too much. :)
4. When you are not writing, what other "hats" do you wear?
I'm a college student, I love baking, singing and playing the guitar, and anything creative.
5. What inspired the idea for Road to Rosewood?
I wanted to write a book with more mystery and adventure, with a hero that was more flawed than perfect as my other heroes have seemed. I wanted to write a story of childhood friends that fall in love.
6. What do you want readers to take away from reading Road to Rosewood?
I want them to close the book happy; that's always my first goal. I want readers to recognize the importance of friendship, love, and trust.
7. What is your current WIP? What can you share with us about this project?
I've started several projects and can't seem to commit to just one! I will say that I'm trying a completely different genre for right now--probably young adult or middle grade. It's super different, but I'm excited!
