Ashley J. Hewlett
Ashley J. Hewlett, author of Cailey’s Best Day, is from Richmond, VA.
Ashley hopes you fall in love with the main character as much as she did, considering she is a spitting image — from appearance to personality — of her daughter, Brennan.
Throughout her years in school, Ashley has been thankful for amazing teachers who encouraged a love of books and reading, which led to her becoming an English teacher.
Ashley has degrees in English Education and Reading. Her first attempt at writing a children’s book came from a children’s literature course she was taking while working on her master’s degree. (Thank you Dr. Robnolt!)

Sarah Morgan lives in Richmond, Virginia and is a college student pursuing a degree in Studio Art as well as Media Arts & Studies. She is thrilled to be illustrating Cailey’s Best Day, which is her first illustrated children’s book!
