More About the Author

Trisha Ashley writes romantic comedies, and her latest novel, Creature Comforts, is her seventh consecutive Sunday Times Top Ten bestseller. Her novels have twice been shortlisted for the Melissa Nathan award for Romantic Comedy and Every Woman for Herself was nominated by readers as one of the top three romantic novels of the last fifty years.
She is from St Helens in West Lancashire, and believes that her typically dark Lancashire sense of humour in adversity, crossed with a good dose of Celtic creativity from her Welsh grandmother, have made her what she is today...whatever that is. Five of her novels are set in rural West Lancashire and three in Wales. They frequently explore aspects of the three F's that are a constant in her own life: Food, Flowers and Friendship and include delicious recipes at the back.
Nowadays she lives in North Wales, together with the neurotic Border Collie foisted onto her by her son, and a very chancy Muse.
She is the founder member of NW Novelistas Ink, a group of twelve novelists, several of whom are bestselling, who meet regularly in North Wales; she is also a long term member of the Society of Authors and a member of Literature Wales.
Creature Comforts will be published in paperback in June 2015 and A Christmas Cracker will follow in October 2015.
Trisha has a website at www.trishaashley.com where you can find out more about her, sign up for her newsletter, or see a complete list of her books. You will also find her on twitter as @trishaashley.

When I grow up I want to write like Trisha Ashley! Funny, quirky, romantic (but not in a "gag me" way), sweet, troubling, painful, smart, smart, smart! With a very funny nod to the Austen (as in Jane) family, we find Cass, a prolific and popular writer of horror novels. Her perfect angelic sister Jane writes critically acclaimed (but b-o-r-i-n-g) poetry, her brothers float around the world. Some quite literally, in the British navy (one is very high ranking, one a total wastrel - see what I mean about the JA connections). Cass's parents (including her "Reverend" father) spent her childhood convincing her she was the spawn of the Devil and trying to exorcise the evil out of her - and out it comes, onto the written page in her novels. Her troubles haven't stopped with her crazy family - she's been carrying on an affair with a married professor for 20 years, they met when she was at university. He "couldn't" leave his wife for her, so she settled into life in a small village, with a few close friends, including the local vicar. She writes at night, haunts the local cemetery for inspiration, wishes for a baby - and gets along. Suddenly things start to unravel and we've got two wives dead under suspicious circumstances, another missing under increasingly mysterious circumstances, a perfect sister heading for life in a Yurt in Cornwall, a good friend who wants to be Cass's sperm donor (or else!), another friend who wants Cass to be Wonder Woman (costume and all) and a very mysterious dark stranger who just wants Cass as his slave. It's enough to make a woman go batty (not to be confused with her pet rubber bat, Clive.) It all sounds preposterous and farcical and that is the brilliance of Trisha Ashley. She carries if off beautifully - I could not put this book down, once I started reading it.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
The wry expression on the heroine's pretty face says it all - this is a charming, entertaining comedy based on the premise that if it looks like a frog and croaks like a frog, it probably is a frog. But just once in a while, a frog does turn into a prince!
Cass is a novelist writing shock-horror stories that sell rather well, but whose own life is a mess - her married lover is suddenly widowed but doesn't seem keen to marry Cass, the biological clock is ticking, but there's nobody who is fit to father the child Cass so desperately desires.
Until a dark and handsome but rather waspish stranger appears one moonlit night, and heroine Cass can't decide if he's the answer to her prayers or a bat out of hell.
Trisha Ashley's brilliantly witty novel introduces the reader to some fascinating characters, and while it's sometimes feel-good fantasy, it's grounded in the realities of women's lives today. It explores the difficult choices we all have to make. It's a great page-turner that keeps the reader guessing, but offers her some splendid twists at the very end.
I think this author is heading for stardom.

Format: Paperback
Cassandra "Cass" Leigh is a famous horror writer. Writing horror novels is a way to purge herself of past demons that still haunt her nightmares. Nightmares that are courtesy of her parents' idea of punishment, being locked up under cupboards for hours on end. She has a long-term lover, who is married, named Max. Max has left Cass in the U.K. and taken his wife off to America for about a year, leaving Cass all alone. Cass has always thought Max and she would eventually marry, have children, and grow old together. Now she realizes that it's never going to happen. Being in her mid-forties, it is probably too late for her to even get pregnant.
Jason, her long time friend, has developed a crush on her, due to the Vampirella costume she wears while she does crypt-o-grams (singing telegrams). He has told Cass in no uncertain terms that he would GLADLY let her use him to get pregnant! At the same time, Dante Chase, the new owner of the U.K.'s most ghost-infested manor house, Kedge Hall, has caught her attention. Now, THERE is a man even more haunted by his past than SHE is!
Every year the vicar has a slave auction that Cass volunteers for. The public bids on the volunteers, and once their indentured servant is purchased, the winner has a slave for one day to do chores for them. (Nothing kinky.) Max, Jason, and Dante are each determined to bid for her. And Cass somehow knows that they are all after more than a little light dusting or palm reading. Oh, did I forget to mention about Cass's little talent? If she touches someone she can feel their emotions, sort of an empathy talent.
Through it all is her crazy family. Her father calls often and leaves long rants on her machine calling her the spawn of satan and preaching brimstone. Her mother won't speak with her.

Format: Paperback
I liked Trisha Ashley's previous novels, 'The Urge to Jump' and 'Every Woman for Herself' very much, though didn't greatly care for 'Good Husband Material'. She has enough of a dark streak to strip some of the sugar off the romantic novel genre without completely ruining it.
This novel is perfectly enjoyable, has some wildly funny moments, and is probably fine, if you haven't read one of the earlier ones (I would recommend 'Every Woman for Herself' in particular), but it is a bit of a disappointment. I felt that she had reworked The Urge to Jump (again a novelist heroine, this time a horror writer) to rather less effect.
I'm not sure who I'd compare Tricia Ashley to, she has her own skewed voice. But I also like Isla Dewar, Kate Atkinson, Kate Fenton & Sparkle Hayter, to give a random selection. If your random selction coincides (or even differs wildly), I'd say she's well worth a look. I'm not sure I'd start here though.
