Phillipa Ashley is the author of the best-selling Cornish Cafe series. Before she became a full-time writer, she studied English at Oxford and worked as a copywriter and journalist. As Pippa Croft, Phillipa also writes as the Oxford Blue series which is published by Penguin Books.
She lives in a Staffordshire village with her husband and has a grown-up daughter. When she's not writing, she loves falling off surf boards and following Poldark around in a camper van.
Book one in a brand new series, set on the Isles of Scilly, Christmas on the Little Cornish Isles: the Driftwood Inn is available for pre-order now.
