Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA. She nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn't taken her first breath!).

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.

Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and

Thank you for your lovely words and the answer to your question is...yes.

I do actually have a book brewing, the finale to the Colorado Mountain Series, where the exes WILL be the hero and heroine. Wood and Maggie, who are introduced in SWEET DREAMS and who get back together, will have their stories told in retrospect and in the future. It's a nice bookend (I hope) and will be a real challenge as we'll be going back in time prior to events that happen in the books and through events that happen in the books to get them to their HEA.

But I'm looking forward to it. I like the idea of delving into that, assessing how it went bad, and resurrecting it. Especially since they didn't have a relationship - they had marriage - kids, and how that goes!(less)

25 Things You Didn’t Know About Me

1) I make my bed every day.

2) My bed has so many pillows, you kinda can’t see the actual bed.

3) Speaking of pillows, I’m addicted to toss pillows. I even change out their covers with the seasons.

4) Number three is the reason that nearly every single book I’ve written has a mention of toss pillows.

5) Halloween is my favorite... Read more of this blog post »

Stephanie Hey Kristen! Huge huge fan of yours. I have read all your books at least twice. I am starting to buy your books in paperback and was wondering if all will eventually be available in print? I would love to own "At Peace" (my first KA experience) or "Fairytale come alive". Thanks for writing such amazing characters & looking forward to more from you! :)
