Everleigh Ashcroft is the author of sultry and heart-pounding contemporary romance and romantic suspense novels and novellas, including the Amazon bestseller, Federal Affair; Cosmopolitan-featured Tongue Tied; and 2018 Watty Awards Longlister, Burning Desire. She is also the author of The Assignment, a highly praised crime-laced romance that has stayed on the Wattpad Hot List for over three years.
Throughout her life, Everleigh has always enjoyed writing as a hobby, but didn't consider it as a career until 2013 when she decided to write her first novella. Shortly after finishing the story, Everleigh developed her own publishing company and began self-publishing eBooks in 2015. Since the publishing of her first book, Everleigh has continued to write, creating a joyous career out of what was once just a hobby at her kitchen table. She finished her first full-length novel, Federal Affair, in 2016. The book has since reached nearly three million reads on Wattpad.
Following the success of Federal Affair, Everleigh completed her next novel, Tongue Tied, in 2017, and the book was featured by Cosmopolitan as an "exceptional fiction story." In 2018, she released The Assignment, a seductive crime thriller, and Burning Desire, an exciting novel based around a love triangle. Both have stayed popular on Wattpad since their publishing, and Burning Desire now has a standalone sequel, The Ties That Bind, by popular demand. Everleigh's sixth novel, Licensed toKill, released in December 2018. Her first cookbook, The Cozy Kitchen, was revised and expanded in November 2021 - just in time for the holidays!
Everleigh believes a great book, a hard laugh, and long road trips are the keys to happiness. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, traveling, cooking, volcaneering (mountaineering with a preference in volcanoes), and photography. Some of Everleigh's future goals are to publish a photography book, climb several more Cascade volcanoes and Denali (and possibly write a book about that!), get her helicopter pilot license, and have at least one of her novels turned into a movie or TV show. She aspires to write New York Times and USA Today bestsellers for the rest of her career - and travel all around the globe before she's 40!
Everleigh Elise Ashcroft currently resides in the colorful Catskill Mountains of upstate New York with her family and four rambunctious dogs, Charlie, River, Montana, and Elee. You can also find pieces of her heart cemented in the mountains of Montana and Washington.
Everleigh's eighth novel, The Acadia Killer, is expected to release this summer. As of May 2022, her books have garnered a collective 5.8 million reads and 101K votes on Wattpad alone.
