Things People Say
“This was the first time I had used OWS for editing. I have worked with several other editors in the past so I had a good idea of what sort of service I expected for the price I paid. They lived up to my expectations with fast, efficient, accurate, and good value work. I would highly recommend their editing services to other authors.”
“None of my talents would have seen the light of day without the amazing support of Stephanie Ayers and A.L. Mabry, founders of Our Write Side, and Wendy Strain too. Without them, I would not have had the courage to show off my many talents. They truly help all authors succeed and achieve their goals!”

OWS Ink Founders
Stephanie Ayers and Amanda (A.L.) Mabry were partnered up during a writing project nearly 10 years ago. They learned they had much more than just writing in common and bonded right away. Over the years, they have supported each other’s other writing and have grown together. This writing relationship naturally evolved into a dream: to build a writing community that would offer others the support they found in each other. Our Write Side was launched in October of 2015 and has seen incredible growth since. In 2017 the dynamic duo welcomed Heidi Angell to the team, another author who connected with their vision in a visceral way. Together, they are the three musketeers with their big dreams. Amazing things are forthcoming you won’t want to miss out on, so stay tuned.
Co-founder & Executive Marketing Director
A. L. Mabry is an author, freelancer, and editor who enjoys writing in all genres and forms, even grocery lists. She is an artist and Wiccan who has an obsessive love of vampires, kilts, and blue butterflies. She is passionate about many topics and her posts are often laced with the snarky sense of humor one acquires from raising five teenagers, all at once.
Co-founder & Executive Creative Director
Stephanie Ayers is a published author with a knack for twisted tales, a full-time world-building ninja, and graphic designer. She loves a good thriller, fairies, things that go bump in the night, and sappy stories. Her days are spent crafting her own story, enjoying her family, avoiding housework, growing up, and all things zombies.
Executive Publishing Director
Heidi Angell is a bibliophile, lexicomaniac, and wordsmith. When she isn’t writing or reading, she enjoys helping fellow authors on their writing adventures. As such, she is honored to join the staff of OWS as Executive Publishing Director and will continue sharing her author experiences on the blog to provide additional great content for all authors.
