All my books and the Anthologies I have written stories for can be found on my Amazon page:


I also love to read and am more than happy to write reviews and to interview fellow authors.

Stitch and Chewie are my beautiful  labradors, who along with their previous buddy, Obi (the star of my second book) inspires me everyday. So I have started this Stitch Says blog to interview and review other authors, and see what inspires them. Chewie has his own segment – Chewie’s News for book updates. If you would like an interview or a review please contact me at:

    Dear Ashley:
    Debdatta Sahay suggested I check your website. I live in Florida, USA. and see that you have written three children’s books.

    Would you please consider reviewing my Fantasy/Adventure Chapter Book for children ages 9 through 12. Published in 2013, Come Along With Me is approximately 22,000 words and is 83 pages. Many adults have told me that they consider my story multi-generational. If you decide to review my first book in the Gracie Series, I will forward a PDF, or an e-book. Please tell me your preference. I have no time frame in mind.

    My goal: To expand the imaginations of children while simultaneously exposing them to a variety of cultures and histories.

    Here is a Blurb

    Come Along With Me will transport eight-to twelve-year old children, their parents, and their grandparents to another world when they read Come Along With Me, an adventure about friendship and caring, the unfortunate consequences of jealousy, and the power of hope.

    Meet Gracie, a ditzy dwarf kangaroo from the thirty-sixth universe–a creature who lives in a perfect realm. Because she is bored, Gracie longs for an adventure to St. Petersburg, Russia, a place she imagines is filled with beauty and enchantment. Much to the tiny ’roo’s surprise, her ability to transport herself to the land of the czars has failed. She ends up at a dairy farm in St. Clair, Pennsylvania, where she saves the life of Gibson, an abandoned Maine coon cat.

    The unlikely pair become fast friends. While Gracie tries to find her way back home, Gibson carves a life for himself on a farm with his newly adopted mistress, the farmer’s young daughter. There’s one hitch: The overworked farmer demands that Gibson earn his keep. Gibson’s task is thwarted somewhat when he experiences strange visions. But are these visions the result of a thrashing he received from the farmer’s two dogs? Or, maybe Gibson sees parallel universes?

    As outsiders the little kangaroo and the cat from the city negotiate the perils of farm life. They meet two malicious rats who hate anyone who is happy. The two devoted friends must contend with stampeding cows and a barnyard of critters that have little use for newcomers.

    Will Gibson keep his sanity and become the little girl’s pet? Will Gracie ever see the splendor of the Russian Versailles? Will the farmer survive the evil machinations of the rats, Bratwold and Eastman? Drift back to the days of Barbie dolls, hula hoops, and Sputnik to find out.
    Thank you for your time, Ashley. I hope you find Come Along With Me a delightful reading journey.
