Ashley Barner is a PhD in English and the author of the fantasy novel Blue Feathers. She began this blog to talk about her Lyme disease, but it quickly got out of hand: within a week, she was also blogging about her depression, her anxiety, and her search for a way to do pin curls for her Jane Austen Halloween costume. Ashley should really put another sentence of meaningful content right here, but she’s drawing a blank. She currently lives in Pennsylvania with her family and their fourteen cats.
