RITA Award-winning author Leah Ashton never expected to write books. She grew up reading everything she could lay her hands on – from pony books to the back of cereal boxes at breakfast. One day she discovered the page-turning, happy-sigh-inducing world of romance novels… and one day, much later, wondered if maybe she could write one too.
Leah now lives in Perth, Western Australia and writes happy ever afters for heroines who definitely don’t need saving. She has a gorgeous husband, two amazing daughters and the best intentions to meal plan and have an effortlessly tidy home. When she’s not writing, Leah loves all day breakfast, rambling conversations and laughing until she cries. She really hates cucumber. And scary movies.

A bit more about me:
I sold my first book (Secrets & Speed Dating) in 2011, after winning the 2010 New Voices Competition, a world-wide competition run by Harlequin Mills & Boon. I’ve now written six books for Harlequin across both their Romance and KISS lines. My books have been translated into more than seven languages, and at last count had sold more than 250,000 copies globally.
