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)

The Case for Beth Dutton

If you follow me on Facebook, you may have recently read me waxing poetic about the Kevin Costner television show that airs on the Paramount network: Yellowstone.

Now, a television show that reminds us that the first American outlaws were the cowboys, and we may have glorified them through history, but the premier American outlaws are still cowboys…I want me some of that.

See, apparently they just l Read more of this blog post »

Alissa Hi Kristen,

I was rereading Lucky Stars and was wondering if we will ever find out what happened to Lachlan and his girl Emma. Loved the series and would be excited to see more of Lachlan and his twin.

Thanks, Alissa.

Iceprincess Hi khristen,
First off let me say I have read EVERY BOOK, you got me hooked with "the burg", and from then the hunt was on, most of your books I read 2-3 times, that's how good you are at making fall in love with your characters and how rich you describe them that I feel there pain and happiness and of course the sex is off the charts. I consider myself and so do others(I don't care what ppl think of me) a Alfa female, but I have a soft spot hard to get to so therefore I crave the Alfa man. I am also way into erotica and BDSM( I am more at the stage of bdsm, working to get to BDSM). So with all that said the first book of the honey series this literally hurts to say and I am not kidding I could not finish it I jumped over pages and I still can't find myself knowing Amelia or Oliver. The come off as secondary characters but to whom to what??? I am so sad right now. And I don't need anyone saying it's just a book, to me it's not she is my fave author and she makes the words come to life.. except for this.. please explain..

Hurting for the Khristen I know well in book anyway... YOU ARE STILL MY FAVE!!!

One love


Stacey is Sassy Hey Kristen, thanks for accepting.

Love your work and getting to meet you at RWDU on the Gold Coast.

Have A Great Day!! :-) ♥

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?
