Ashley Emma has a deep respect for the Amish and wanted to make sure her books were genuine, and as a result stayed with three Amish families when she was 20. It was here that she made many friends and did her research for the Amish book, which is the first in a series.

She owns Fearless Publishing House in Maine, where she lives with her husband and two children. Ashley is passionate about helping her clients to self-publish their own books, helping to encourage them into chasing their dreams of becoming a published author.

Undercover Amish tells the story of detective Olivia Mast, who would rather run through gunfire than return to the Amish community in Unity, Maine, where she was forced to kill her husband in self defense, and witnesses the murder of her family.

When an Amish man is murdered, the community refuses to pursue justice or answer questions from the police, Olivia must don her old prayer kapp and go back to investigate the murder as an undercover detective.

To complicate matters, she is also ordered to protect the man she dated as a teenager – an Amish man who was attacked on the day of the murder, but can't remember what happened. He is the only one who can help Olivia solve the crimes because of his personal ties to the suspect, but only if they don't get distracted by their reignited feelings for each other.

"Ashley Emma has crafted an intriguing crime mystery with a surprising twist. I didn't see that ending coming at all. And I'm a little jealous. Once I got into this book, I couldn't put it down." -Michael Wilkinson, bestselling author of A Father's Guide to Raising Daughters

"Ashley Emma clearly did extensive research on the subject and portrayed this group in a compassionate, thoughtful manner. Couple her careful handling of this society with her compelling characters and heart-racing plot, and you've got a real winner!” -Staci Troilo, author of Mind Control and multiple other titles “Buy this book! It's a five-star read in my opinion.” -Wendy Pearson, moderator of "The Write Practice"
