Ashley's stories have an unexpected twist at the end. They might make you chuckle, or pull at your heart strings, but your reaction is also likely to surprise you. The inspiration for many of Ashley's stories comes from historical events or from travel. Recent travels in Greece and research into a mysterious murder in Australia in 1972 has lead to Ashley's latest book, In Too Deep. As well as following a murder trail through the Greek Isles, Australia and England, it confronts a perennial social issue.
