Contemporary romance writer Zoe Ashwood

Hi! Welcome to my site. I'm Zoe Ashwood, a romance writer with a passion for sweet stories with a sexy twist. I want to make my readers fall in love with romance because I believe we all need a dash of love in our lives.


I'm currently working on the edits of my first novel, Deliciously Yours (you can read more about it here), and drafting its currently unnamed sequel. Both novels are part of a series set in a small Maine harbor town and feature passionate women and strong men. I'm nearly ready to query - and definitely will be by the end of March 2017. I'm also working on a pet project, a paranormal romance with shapeshifters.


When I'm not writing, I can be found reading anything from romance to high fantasy, young adult or adult. I also like cooking, baking, traveling to new places, and spending time with my family. My husband is the love of my life and my best friend, and our two kids are great. I'm lucky to have them.


My childhood favorites are The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Witches by Roald Dahl, The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien, and The Brothers Lionheart by Astrid Lindgren. In recent years, I've enjoyed books by Jill Shalvis, Patrick Rothfuss, Laini Taylor, Rainbow Rowell, Karen Hawkins, Victoria Schwab, Tessa Dare, Scott Lynch, Jennifer Crusie, Mark Haddon, and Juliet Marillier. As I said, I'll read pretty much anything if it's good!
