Inez Asher (née Inez Harriett Silverberg; January 1, 1911 in Des Moines, Iowa – May 8, 2006 in Yonkers, New York) was a novelist and television writer. Asher co-wrote the episode "Robert E. Lee" for the Famous Children of History radio program. With Emilie Roberts, Asher composed a short lecture, "Irene Talking." Asher wrote "The Last Orchid," the first episode of the Philco Players television program (1948). Asher wrote for Lassie (1954 TV series) and wrote the Welcome to Washington/Claudette Colbert Show of the Colgate Theatre. Asher published one novel, Family Sins (Pinnacle Books, New York 1983), the story of an American widow who travels to the Orient in pursuit of a Korean orphan and ends up in the arms of a handsome but married Japanese doctor. Asher was co-author (with illustrator Alice Rovinsky) of two illustrated books of verse: Look at Me! A See Yourself Book for Boys and Look at Me! A See Yourself Book for Girls (Garden City Books, Garden City, New York 1951). Parents would paste a child's photo in the designated spot inside the back cover and as the child turned the pages he would see his face, through a hole cut in each page, in all the people he wanted to be: pilot, railroad conductor, etc. "Look at me, and you will see, all the things I'd like to be. If I were a fireman brave, Folks in danger I would save!" or "To be a cowboy, Bronco Bill, That would give me such a thrill!" Publishers Weekly called the books "A delightful novelty."
