Top 5 Fantasy Reads
“When I’m writing fantasy, it’s true that I’m rarely reading fantasy. This isn’t because I don’t love fantasy, but because it helps with my writing mojo when I have a clean slate in my head. However, there are a few books and series that I think are a must for any fantasy reader, and one that I can’t wait to get my hands on now that the Fantasyland series is complete!”
- The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
- His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman
- The Immortals After Dark Series by Kresley Cole
- The Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon
- And I’m dying to read Christine Feehan. I adore her (personally) but have yet to experience her awesomeness. Now that I’m back to reading, I hope to one day soon!

About Kristen Ashley:
Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn’t taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen’s Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.
Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she’s blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).
Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.
And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.
