I just (Monday) turned in Book 3 of this series–I’ll let you know when there’s a title! Kat Holloway continues!

So does Captain Lacey! Stay tuned for more information on Death at Brighton Pavilion, Book 14 in the Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries series.

Starred Review for Death Below Stairs. Captain Lacey updates.

Death Below Stairs received a starred review from Publisher’s Weekly! That is no easy feat! I am pleased the reviewer enjoyed it. It begins: “Set in 1881, this exceptional series launch from Ashley (the Shifters Unbound series) introduces Kat Holloway, a brilliant cook employed in the lavish London home of Lord Rankin.”

I have started work on Murder in St. Giles (Captain Lacey Book 13). I have been mulling this book for a while and doing research on events of and different aspects of life in 1819. I plan for the book to be out in March 2018, with pre-orders coming in December. I’ll post when I know more.

Thames River Murders is a bestseller!

I was absolutely thrilled to learn that The Thames River Murders hit the USA Today Bestseller list! Thank you for supporting this series–I have worked very hard to get it this far!

I am researching and pre-writing The Alexandria Affair, which I will have up for pre-order as soon as I am able (I can only have pre-orders 90 days in advance with most vendors). I am still working out my schedule for next year, but I will have another Capt. Lacey (more if I’m able) and another Kat Holloway story.

My cover designer is working the covers for The Alexandria Affair and Kat’s book, A Dollop of Death. More info on both of these books when I have it.

I have seriously cut back on books I owe my publisher (two a year now, not four to six!), so I now have more time to write mysteries! Precisely what I wanted when I began this whole writing venture!

Again, thank you for sticking with Captain Lacey and the series in all its ups and downs!
