Romance Author


Sacha began writing at an early age as a way to escape, finding safety and comfort in the characters she created. Not much has changed today. Even with several books under her belt, Sacha still finds herself engrossed in the lives of her characters and their stories.

For Sacha, it is not just writing stories that are diverse and relatable to all, but more so telling her story. It is through her personal journey that people not only learn more about Sacha as a person but also how and why she writes the characters and stories she does.

As she continues her journey, Sacha’s goal is to help others find their way, whether through her own story, or the characters she creates. Allowing people to find commonality and connection in a world where most feel completely alone is more than a passion; it is a purpose.
