Ashlee Cowles

About me

Ashlee Cowles fell in love with historical fiction the first time she read classics such as Little House on the Prairie and Anne of Green Gables–stories about girls growing up in the “olden days” that continue to speak years later.

An “army brat” upbringing gave Ashlee the opportunity to travel the world. Living in Europe during her teenage years sparked an interest in stone castles, cathedrals, and stories of the past, which led to graduate studies in Theology at Duke University and Medieval History at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland.

Ashlee writes novels for adults and teens that explore a variety of historical and philosophical themes. Her work is represented by Erin Harris of Folio Literary Management.
