Ashley Rittman lives in Southern California with her husband and their three kids. She was diagnosed with PCOS in 2005 and became a mother by way of adoption and fertility treatments. Currently she's working as a photographer; see her work at Ashley Rittman Photo. Ashley also blogs at Feigning Fertility writing about everything from her own experiences living with PCOS and the fallout, thoughts on reproductive issues and this weird thing her cat did. She thinks peanut butter tastes like evil, probably could play piano with her toes if she wanted to, makes small children cry when she sings and is double jointed in her left arm. It looks really gross.
