Our next Stories on Stage guest Sasha Wasley was born and raised in Perth, Western Australia. She lives in the Swan Valley wine region with her two daughters. She writes commercial fiction, crossover new adult/YA mysteries and paranormal. Her most recent books are True Blue and Dear Banjo, which comprise two of a three-book romantic fiction series featuring the Paterson sisters and set in the fictional Kimberley town of Mount Clair.

Dear Banjo is the story of the middle sister, Willow – a captivating friends-to-lovers tale of first love and second chances. Book 2, True Blue, is the tale of how youngest sister Freya ‘Free’ Paterson stumbles into true love. We interrupted Sasha’s True Blue release celebrations to ask her some most important questions.
