Hello, readers of Inspy Romance! I’m Laura Ashwood, and I’m delighted to join this amazing community of inspiring authors. I write heartwarming contemporary Christian romance and women’s fiction. My stories explore relationships, second chances, and the everyday moments of grace that uplift us.
I’ve always been an avid reader, losing myself in stories from a young age. A few years ago, I decided to try crafting stories of my own – tales of hope, second chances and families of the heart. My novels celebrate resilience, redemption and the beauty in ordinary moments. The characters you’ll meet are like old friends – complex, quirky and endlessly inspiring.
I believe in the ability of story to change lives, and through my books, I celebrate the resilience of the human spirit, the power of faith and forgiveness, and the light that finds us even in our darkest of times. It’s my hope that in some small way, my stories encourage others and remind readers that they are never alone. That there is always hope to be found and a purpose in each new day. Life has taught me that love comes softly, forgiveness frees us, and there are angels unaware all around.
When I’m not writing, you can find me cooking, gardening, or spending time with family. I live in Minnesota with my husband, kids, grandkids and two very spoiled Chihuahuas.
Thank you for the opportunity to introduce myself. We all need stories to live by – I feel privileged to share those that have lived in me. I look forward to connecting, and to sharing more about the tales closest to my heart in future posts.
