I write Young Adult and Middle Grade books about very serious matters that have absolutely nothing to do with Skittles, badly behaved djinns and demon knights that will make you go weak at the knees. I also have a great fondness for housework and can never be found watching television.

If you’d like to find out more about my books or just see what my favorite shows are (I’ll give you a hint: Buffy) then please look around. Or, if you still can’t find what you’re searching for, then head to the contact page and send me an email.

I’ll be at Noosa Library on the 1st of October running a workshop called Zombies, Demons and Things That Go Bump in the Night. It’s for kids aged 10 and over and it’s free, though you will need to call the library and book a place.

The annual Crossroads Blog Tour is fast approaching. This is the fourth year I’ve done it and it doesn’t get less gruesome!

The reviews are starting to come in for Demonosity!

“With interesting characters and a fresh plot, this absorbing read addresses everything from peer pressure to intelligent guy pals to self-reliance, with just enough paranormal activity to maintain an edge. The message never overwhelms the fun in this frothy paranormal romp.” Kirkus Reviews

“Ashby’s frothy romp percolates with lighthearted humor and droll dialogue, while an involving plot and themes exploring friendship and self-reliance add satisfying substance.” School Library Journal


fun, flirty, feel-good fiction
