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.

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.
