Anne Ashby

Hi, I’m a contemporary traditional/sweet author from New Zealand, published with The Wild Rose Press.  I enjoy including family issues, genealogy, rugby (congratulations to the new World Champions, the mighty New Zealand All Blacks, winner of the Rugby World Cup!), and snippets from my past military life in my stories. New Zealand always features, generally as the setting. Any US set stories contain at least one New Zealand character.
