Hi and Welcome to My Website!

Hi there,

My name’s Phillipa Ashley and I write lively, sexy, fun romantic fiction for Piatkus Entice, Headline Little Black Dress, Sourcebooks and Samhain Publishing. As Pippa Croft, I also write the Oxford Blue series which is published by Penguin Books.

You can follow me on Twitter as @PhillipaAshley or @PippaCroftBooks.

I started writing romance in 2005 and my debut novel won the Romantic Novelists Association New Writers Award and was made into a Lifetime TV movie called 12 Men of Christmas starring Kristin Chenoweth and Josh Hopkins. Read more about it here.

I’ve now had ten novels published in the UK and worldwide – you can read about all of them on this site so take a look around.

My latest release is It Happened One Night published by Piatkus Entice and available now. Please drop me a line any time. Check out this site for information on all my new releases.

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

You can also follow me on Twitter and Facebook.
