I am both Kelly Hashway USA Today bestselling speculative fiction author by day and Ashelyn Drake USA Today bestselling romance author by night—or something like that. Let's just say I like to write so much I had to create an alter ego. When I'm not writing, I'm editing for some really talented authors. That means I'm surrounded by books pretty much 24/7, which is exactly how I like it.

Here's What's New:

Cappuccinos and Corpses Is Now Available!

New business, new boyfriend, new murder investigation?

Joanna Coffee is just getting used to life in her hometown after a three-year hiatus. She’s come to terms with being around her ex and his fiancée, who happens to be Jo’s former best friend. She’s even doing well with her new business, Cup of Jo, and her new boyfriend. The last thing she wants is to be wrapped up in yet another murder investigation.

Two dead bodies are discovered, both with cappuccinos from Jo’s coffee shop. The only difference is Jo isn’t a suspect this time around. Instead, she thinks the supposed accident was actually murder, and she’s determined to prove it even if it means working with her ex, Detective Quentin Perry.





Start the Piper Ashwell Psychic P.I. Series for FREE!

Being psychic doesn’t mean private investigator Piper Ashwell has all the answers.

She’s surrounded by people who either don’t believe in her abilities or want her to solve all the world’s problems.

When nine-year-old Eric Danson goes missing in the middle of the night, Piper is reminded of her first case ever, when she was only twelve years old and her ability to read objects first surfaced. Now, she’s hoping to use that ability to bring the boy home unharmed.

But things only get worse when the boy who’s been bullying Eric goes missing as well. With a kidnapper on the loose, Piper will need to prove she’s the best P.I for the case. But can she find the boys before it’s too late?
