Consistently at the top of Kindle and Audible bestseller lists for four years, Ashley Farley has built an impressive following in women's fiction for someone who was a “closet writer” until the moment she clicked publish on Amazon.

Readers will discover something of themselves through her characters. Her novels promise a dash of romance and a heaping of Southern-style family drama.
