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:

I Spy With My Psychic Eye Someone Dead Is Now Available!

Piper Ashwell is struggling to balance being in a new relationship and getting used to her expanding psychic abilities. When a dismissed sense of foreboding winds up resulting in a murder to investigate, she can’t help feeling she could have prevented it.

What’s worse is every clue she and the Weltunkin PD uncovers points to Piper being the killer. Someone is trying to frame her.

Piper needs to find the real killer and fast—because it will be difficult to prove her innocence from behind bars.





Macchiatos and Murder is Available!

Joanna Coffee is living up to her name, planning the grand opening of her coffee shop in Bennett Falls. At least until local millionaire Sherman Cromwell winds up dead in the street holding a macchiato from Jo’s shop. Not exactly the kind of press she wanted for her new business.

Now the prime suspect in Cromwell’s murder, Jo is determined to prove her innocence, even if it means donning her own detective cap and solving this mystery herself. If she doesn’t clear her name soon, she’ll be turning in her apron for an orange jumpsuit.





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?


Barnes and Noble:
