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.

I love Trisha Ashley's books. "The Urge to Jump" remains one of my all-time favourites. So I really wanted to love "A Christmas Cracker" (even if I didn't like the title - it references the Christmas cracker making business in the novel). It had all the hallmarks of many of her enjoyable books. On...

This book promised much but delivered little in terms of character or plot. It's seriously overwritten and events take an absolute age to be described and dealt with. So much so that what I thought must surely be a time period of about six months turned out to be just a month, so the descriptions do...

This was such a sweet and loving story.Cally was such a loving and genuinely nice person. She was such an easy person to like and you were routing for her from the beginning. Jago was such a kind man, he had been so badly hurt by Aimee whic he didnt deserve. He was also very patient with Cally and ...

Trisha Ashley has a wonderful warm, wry style that has made her books auto-buys for me. If you're new to her books and looking for a Christmas themed cosy read, I'd actually recommend her "Twelve Days of Christmas" instead. This isn't because "Wish Upon a Star" is bad, but because it makes a point...
