Hi and Welcome to My Website!


My name’s Phillipa Ashley and I’m the Sunday Times best-selling author of 27 uplifting romantic novels. You’ll probably know me best as the writer of the Cornish Cafe series, An Endless Cornish Summer, A Special Cornish Christmas and A Surprise Christmas Wedding. As Pippa Croft, I also wrote the steamy Oxford Blue series published by Penguin Books.

You might also have heard of – and read – my debut novel, Decent Exposure which was made into a Lifetime TV movie called 12 Men of Christmas starring Kristin Chenoweth and Josh Hopkins. Read more about it here.

Happy Reading!
