If I overdo the caffeine it does the same thing to me. I hold myself to one tall Americano a day. It does work as a great anti-depressant, as long as I don't dehydrate on the stuff!

Have you ever watched the movie, The Cove? It's about the massacre of dolphins in Japan. At the end of the movie you can sign a petition to help save the dolphins and get texts from Save the Dolphins. I signed a while ago and I just got some great news: "COVE UPDATE: Freedom for 2 dolphins found in deadly swim-with program, now safely rehabilitated and released into wild! http://bit.ly/JwCcfg"

That's two dolphins saved! How many more until the massacre stops in Japan?

The Blind Lily: A Gifted Series Companion
by AshleyNicole Shelton
#Free  Download

The Blind Lily is a prequel to Book One of The Gifted Series 

About:
Lily East is different from other people and has been since her birth. The government has been trying to recruit her, wanting to use her uncontrollable gift to their advantage. After years of evading, Lily finally gives into her "civic duty" and helps the government solve cases gone cold. Her life outside of being a special agent is far from normal. And as if that isn't enough, she finds herself falling in love with the man who almost killed her. This is life, as she sees it. 
Coming soon, in Book One of The Gifted Series, you will learn the whole story, and how Lily's powers came to be. I hope you'll enjoy this novella until then.

Introduction
My name is AshleyNicole. I am a 21-year-old full-time mother and part-time dream catch writer.

Spending time with my son, writing fiction, walking along the water, and designing houses are some of my favorite things to do. I also enjoy watching helicopter seeds fall from the trees, taking pictures of random scenery, and horseback riding.

When I love, I love with all my heart. I enjoy casual walks through beautiful lanscapes. I think spending hours shopping is too tedious and only go when: 1. I know exactly what I'm looking for 2. I am shopping for my son ♥ or 3. if I'm dress shopping

If you want to know more send me a message.
