Henderson is a small, old-fashioned town. Growing up here proved tough for Noah Nash, as he knew the truth he lived would never be accepted in this town, even by his family. To him, all he had was his keyboard.
Until one day, that all changed when Noah met Ronan Shea. Ronan’s confidence, wisdom and pride inspires Noah to finally, happily live his truth for the entire town to see.
This is a story of two young men and their journey to a relationship, fighting for equality and listening to their melody while striving to live in harmony.

Ashley Chunell is a Romance, M/M and GLBT author.
Ashley grew up in Boston and has been writing her entire life. After penning numerous song lyrics, poems and short stories, she went on to write various articles and fan fictions, gaining much writing experience and grammar knowledge. She credits David Archuleta and soap operas as her two, main inspirations and helping her realize her talent for writing.
From 2011-2012, Ashley ran two, successful online blogs. Mindful of Music consisted of music news, reviews and interviews. Ashley interviewed artists such as Imagine Dragons, Jonathan Jackson and Enation, Brooke White, James Durbin Benton Paul, Steven J. Robinson, Preston Powis and some of her biggest inspirations like David Archuleta and Port Chuck. The Soap Bubble was all things soap operas, where Ashley had the chance to interview another one of her inspirations, former-General Hospital and current-Days of Our Lives actress Jen Lilley.
After writing about the things and people she loved, it wasn’t long until Ashley created her own characters and wrote and published her debut novel “Masterpiece” in November 2012, at the young age of 18. “Masterpiece” received 5-star reviews on Amazon.
In July 2013, Ashley published her second novel and first GLBT book, “A Melody in Harmony.” The book is the first of what is now her Noah and Ronan Series. The novel received 5-star reviews on Amazon and Barnes & Noble and was recommended by USA Today. Ashley chose to write a GLBT story after becoming very involved and committed to equal rights and wanted to tell a story focusing on fighting for equality and showcasing two, young men in love. Ashley went on to write and publish a sequel titled “New Melody, Same Harmony,” centered around marriage equality. The sequel also received 5-star reviews on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The third book in the series titled “A Miracle Melody” focuses on the struggles of gay parenting and fatherhood when Noah and Ronan decide to have a baby. The book was released on Father’s Day, June 15, 2014. In its first week, the novel reached #2 on Hot New Releases in Fatherhood for Kindle and was made Book of the Week on Queer Town Abbey. “Teaching A Melody” was released on January 6, 2015 and is the fourth installment in the Noah and Ronan Series.
Ashley is a strong supporter of the organization Stand Up 2 Cancer and a dedicated member of the Crush Kids’ Cancer team. Ashley also supports the NOH8 Campaign, Charity Water and R-Word.
To Ashley, her characters are her children. She even chose the names Jacoby and Evangelina as her main characters in “Masterpiece” because those are the names she wants for her real-life children one day.
Ashley also puts real life into her books. A lot of the homophobia and ignorant remarks in her Noah and Ronan Series were based off of things Ashley heard and witnessed in real life, which made her stories all the more realistic to her.
