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.

The whole Cornish Cafe trilogy is now available. –Summer at the Cornish Cafe and Christmas at the Cornish Cafe and Confetti at the Cornish Cafe are comforting reads with lots of twists and turns – perfect for when you want to escape at any time of year.

It’s now been over 10 years 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.
