Bestselling author, Ashley Bugge, knows tragedy and triumph. From living her dream life in Hawaii, to unexpectedly becoming a military widow at the age of thirty-four, she has had to fight for her life and that of her three young children. Remarkably, Ashley has turned her tragedy into a captivating and emotional story of resilience and determination in the #1 new release of Always Coming Back Home: An Emotional Tale of Love, Adventure, Tragedy and Hope (Morgan James, September 15, 2020) and has also helped her three children author A Hui Hou: Until We Meet Again which will be published in October 2020. An avid traveler, Ashley now combines her passion of exploration with speaking opportunities to discuss her own struggles, using her personal stories to encourage and inspire others to turn their own tragedy into triumph. Ashley has established the Stay Gold for Brian J Bugge scuba diving scholarship which assists military veterans in finding their passion outside of their service by learning to scuba dive, and recently released a documentary titled, “If Only…” which details the events surrounding her husband’s death. Ashley currently resides in the Pacific Northwest, USA with her three children and rescue pup, Chance, scouting out epic adventures soon to be had.
