Sunday Times Top Ten bestselling novelist Trisha Ashley writes romantic comedies and her latest book, The Wedding Dress Repair Shop, was published in 2023 by Transworld. Her next novel, The Christmas Retreat, is coming soon! Her novels have twice been shortlisted for the Melissa Nathan Award for Romantic Comedy, as well as two shortlists and one win (in 2024) of the Romantic Novelists Association Popular Romantic Fiction Award. Every Woman for Herself was also nominated by magazine readers as one of the top three romantic novels of the last fifty years. She is from St Helens in West Lancashire, and believes that her typically dark Lancashire sense of humour in adversity, crossed with a good dose of Celtic creativity from her Welsh grandmother, has made her what she is today... whatever that is. Several of her novels are set in rural West Lancashire, West Yorkshire and Wales. They frequently explore aspects of the three F's that are a constant in her own life: Food, Flowers and Friendship, and include delicious recipes at the back. Nowadays she lives in North Wales and is the founder member of Novelistas Ink, a group of novelists, several of whom are bestselling, who meet regularly in North Wales. She is a long-term member of the Society of Authors. Trisha has a Penguin webpage at www.trishaashley.com where you can sign up for her newsletters and find all the latest book news. And on this official fan site at www.trishaworld.com you can find out more about her, check her forthcoming events, or see a complete list of her books. You will also find her on twitter as @trishaashley.
