Hi and Welcome to My Website!

Hi there,

My name’s Phillipa Ashley and I’m the author of the best-selling Cornish Cafe series. I just love writing feelgood romantic fiction! As Pippa Croft, I also wrote the steamy Oxford Blue series published by Penguin Books.

My brand new Penwith series is out now. Book 1 –Summer at the Cornish Cafe was a 2016 summer best seller and the sequel Christmas at the Cornish Cafe is available from October 13th. They’re both comforting reads with lots of twists and turns – perfect for when you want to escape at any time of year.

This year I’m celebrating a decade since my debut novel, Decent Exposure, was published. It was made into a Lifetime TV movie called 12 Men of Christmas starring Kristin Chenoweth and Josh Hopkins. Read more about it here.

Check out my blog to find out what – and who – is distracting me from my work today.

Love,

Phillipa x
