Ashleigh Burroughs

This is my literary voice. In my real life, The Big Guy (TBG) and I have two twenty-something Cuters, a Son-In-Reality, one mother (G'ma) and an assortment of psuedonymous friends and relatives. (And if that's not a word, it should be.)  I've lived on Long Island and in upstate New York, in Chicago and Marin and Tucson and I've gardened in each and every one of them.  I gained notoriety when I was shot at Cong. Giffords' Congress on Your Corner event in January, 2011.
