**About the Author**
source
Gabrielle Ash is an author and perpetually tired mom of four that grew up in the great state of Texas. Born into a family of mischievous storytellers, she grew up listening to tales of the chupacabra, ghosts, and other things that go bump in the night, never entirely confident that she wouldn’t get eaten if she went out to the creek after sunset.

She attended the University of Texas at Arlington and received a Bachelor of Arts in English, which ultimately landed her in a high school classroom to teach writing and coach the debate team. Dismayed at her inability to wear sweatpants to work, she left the classroom and now dedicates her brain power to books and taking care of her daughters.

When not writing, she spends time with her husband, four daughters, and their dog. The Family Cross is her debut novel.

She is represented by Julie Gwinn at The Seymour Agency.

*Author Q&A*
  • Tell us about your new book!

Jukebox is a graphic novel about two cousins, Shahi and Naz, who find a Jukebox that takes them back in time. It's a story about how music ties us to our past and present, how it's influenced history and how it connects us to each other.

  • How and when did your path as an artist begin?

I've always enjoyed drawing and making up stories. I never considered pursuing it as a career because I didn't know that I could until my late 20s. When I discovered artists who were making art as their job I put all my energy into practicing and improving my artistic skills.

  • What motivates/inspires you when you create your art?

I love a challenge. Work that pushes me to explore and learn is my favorite kind of work. When I'm working I will always have music playing and that keeps me focused and motivated.

  • I read in your bio that you attended art school, then later dropped out. Could you tell me about that experience?

When I was in art school, I loved it but it wasn't enough practice. I was in my late 20s and eager to begin my career. I dropped out because I wanted to focus on skill building. After school I completed a new illustration every weekday for years. I created my own ritual to force myself to practice and improve. At the end of the first year of daily drawings, I opened an Etsy store because people wanted prints! The desire to improve my artistic skills helped me start my art business and eventually lead to illustrating and writing books.
