About Ainsley's Books

Hello! I'm so happy you decided to check out my women's fiction books!


This series of books deals with subjects both heavy and light. They're full of humor,  love, support, found family and community. The ladies in these books support one another unconditionally through deaths, births, surprise children, health scares, falling in and out of love, and every day life. You'll find yourself wanting best friends just like these ladies!

The ladies also have children with issues of their own. Their children are finding their place in the world and the ladies support them just the same as they support one another.


The books also handle darker subject matter, such as coming to terms with one's sexuality; drug abuse; PTSD; controlling and abusive spouses; and child custody issues. 

I hope you enjoy these books as much as I've enjoyed writing them!
