TL Ashton writes books for smart sexy women. They know that smart is sexy because love lives in the brain, where we experience ultimate union. These women have been to college and face the paramount challenge of the work place. They want their vision and talent to be recognized because the self-respect that comes with success leads to genuine love, the love that helps us realize our fullest potential. They learn that they matter, and because they do, they can overcome male fear of just who they are. Ashton started in New York City and expects to end there, but has lived in Los Angeles, Manilla, Djakarta, Paris, London, and for long stretches in the Turks and Caicos. After attending four other schools, Ashton was granted a degree by Columbia ...more

“Now you’ve seen how I became Ms. Money, a highly paid financial strategist and TV stock market commentator with a bank account to die for. I took off my clothes, so to speak, and bared it all. I have two children who are worth more to me than anything in the world. Even more important you now know that the hero of my story is a woman. She is neither slave girl, nor princess, as central casting would have it. She knows that women can be heroes not heroines. And she knows what she has to do to become one. What I am is a woman who understands the heroism of being a woman. I’m ready now for grueling arduous conflict. But please pay careful attention because my struggle is a woman’s. Fire-breathing dragons have been extinct for centuries.”
T.L. Ashton, Ms. Money

“Years later, she read that the media elites were threatening Cookie Monster with political crime. Cookie was crucified on the cross of obesity. The media wanted to replace him with Veggie Monster! How stupid was that. Real people make their own decisions. But by then she knew that television was worse than stupid. It existed to shape a mindless false reality that served its own purposes. Life has more tears than a sitcom has canned laughter. She knew that now. Jillian”
T.L. Ashton, The Madonna Model

“They saw Schilling take it all in. But he had more to say and exploded. “Listen, to the money talk! I just want you to know that I wasn’t in it to prove I could paint. Sure I wanted the cash. But you know what it was really all about. I was sticking it to the collectors who are so puffed up they would die to get a masterpiece on the cheap. They’re begging to be deceived. They deserve what they get because they’re the biggest fakes of all. I may not be a culture hero. But they’re nothing more than pretentious snobs with terrible taste just begging to be cheated. I loved putting it to them.”

T.L. Ashton, The Madonna Model

“She ended her talk, once again showing both the Bigelow Cassatt and the Raphael Granduca Madonna. “By transforming Helen, first into a mother and then into the Madonna model,” she concluded, “Cassatt captured the religious belief system of the Renaissance in an Impressionist context. Her work shows that the living bond between every mother and child is no less than Mary’s with the infant Jesus. Unconditional human love is holy.”
