The 12:30 AM Cactus Incident. You’ll have to ask her what it means, but that would be the title of Ashley London’s future best selling novel. She doesn’t just write the books though, she reads them too, with Fablehaven at the top of her list.

Reading and writing are not her main interests though, she hopes to one day be a preschool teacher or speech therapist for kids.

London has one little sister who is seven years younger than her, making working with kids not out of the ordinary for her. Along with her career, London’s aspirations in life include having a family with a loving husband and “cute little girls.”

Along with reading, London enjoys her fair share of movies and TV shows, listing Steel Magnolias and Criminal Minds as some of her favorites. If given the chance, London would choose to live in the world of Mama Mia and be young Donna because she would love to “dress like that and have a life like that.”

Music is incredibly important to London. “My friends tell me I listen to old people music,” she says. Her favorites are The Killers, Blink 182, and other 80s bands. Her favorite concerts that she has been to are The Killers and P!nk.

New Zealand or Paris would be London’s ideal travel destinations, but for now she stays local. “I haven’t ever been anywhere super extravagant but I love Yellowstone and I went there over the summer and it was super pretty,” London recalls her vacation to the national park.

London says her friends would describe her as caring, helpful, or annoying. She would rank her strongest character trait as understanding, she says she’s a very good listener. As far as friends go, London says she knows just about everything about Emma Kofoed.

London said her biggest role models in life are the music artist P!nk and her late grandmother. Her grandma battled with leukemia and London said that her perseverance made her a very good example to her. Because of that role model, London is very persistent and she says “I don’t like quitting, to me, quitting is just stupid.”
