Summary

Sasha Wasley is a Perth-based author of contemporary and historical fiction, providing writing workshops for schools and events.

Biography

Sasha Wasley was born and raised in Perth, Western Australia.
She composed her first literary work before she could write – a poem, orated improv-style in the kitchen at five years old. A known literature nerd in high school, Sasha went on to spend several hundred years at university and completed a PhD in feminist literature in 2006.
Finding the career opportunities for experts in feminist literature somewhat scarce, Sasha worked for a number of years as a copywriter. Her debut novel was published in 2015, after which Sasha gave up her copywriting business to pursue her fiction writing career.
Today, she lives and writes in the Perth hills region with her partner and two daughters. A lover of animals, Sasha spends her free time pottering in the garden with her flock of backyard chickens.
She is known for her love of nature, Jane Austen and puns.
