My Books

Eyes Without a Face


Out of the Desert



The novel succeeds on Ashton’s ability to create characters who are dynamic and capable of change, and through her capacity to create a rapid-fire series of episodes that draw the reader into this saga-like novel.

– NY Journal of Books

Ashton deftly personifies the mechanics on an investigation by shifting POVs to recount the activities of the multiple protagonists in the cinematic style of Tom Clancy.

– Thomas A burns, Jr., author of the Natalie McMasters Mystery series.

This is a thriller with heart, and the human side of the drama is what makes this book a winner.

– Austin S. Camacho, author of the Hannibal Jones Mystery Series
