Jen: I don’t know what came first for us. Our love of Hollywood or our love of the paranormal.
Lisa: Actually, The Lost Boys came first, so it was both Hollywood and the paranormal at the same time.
Jen: It’s funny how it all goes back to The Lost Boys. Our love for that movie inspired so much for us. It really shouldn’t come as any surprise what we’re working on now then, since it mixes our two favorites loves. We’ve been writing paranormal romance and contemporary Hollywood-based romance since 2003, yet I still find myself wowed at least once a day by our newest endeavor. A year ago, who would’ve thought we’d be writing, creating and producing a romantic paranormal web series? Read more…

This weekend, Lisa and I met our best friend Wendy at Disneyland, a great meeting point for the three of us, since Lisa and I live North of Los Angeles, and Wendy lives in San Diego. Over dinner, as we were toasting being together, we realized we were celebrating a milestone—twenty-five years of friendship. This [...]

At least a few times every year we (Jen and Lisa, both halves of Ashleigh Raine) seek out adventures. Sometimes, they’re as small as a day trip to the beach and sometimes, well, they’re a little bigger. Case in point, our most recent sojourn. We hope you enjoy the photos as much as we enjoy [...]

Jen: One of the most popular questions any author is asked is “where do you get your ideas?” For our Hollywood Heat series: Acting on Impulse, Driven to Distraction and the soon-to-be-released Starstruck, some of our real-life Hollywood experiences have become fictional fodder.
Lisa: Because I have worked for years in the entertainment industry, I’ve had quite a few adventures, mostly as an extra. I’ve played an alien, a recovering nymphomaniac, a few hookers, a dead nun and quite a few pedestrians. One said pedestrian experience was on a better-left-forgotten Christmas movie with Ben Affleck. Myself and another extra walked behind him as he argued with a co-star. Well, in one of the takes, he gestured by throwing his arm out…and nearly clotheslined me. He had no idea we were coming up behind him. I was able to duck and sort of swish around his outstretched hand. Of course, since it was a close call, I told Jen about it and we agreed it might be fun to put that in a book somewhere.

Jen: Today is my son’s last day of school. He’s been counting down the days for the last two months, and every day on the way to school he’s shouted loud and clear just how many days he had remaining. For me, today comes with mixed emotions. I’ve got multiple deadlines piling up, lots of [...]
