Sasha Pruett

Biography

Author Sasha Pruett has been writing for more than two decades in various genres from horror to sci-fi, fantasy and adventure. She resides in the south with her husband of more than twenty years where she enjoys taking care of her home and pets. She is an avid reader and gamer and has many hobbies including music, painting, crafting, knitting and more.
When asked about what started her desire to become a writer she states, "It wasn't really something I decided like some people do, it wasn't one of those, 'When I grow up I want to be a writer,' or 'I'm going to write a book one day.' It was just something that was a part of who I was; who I am, something that was natural from the time I could remember, something I did that flowed from me. When I was nine I had an idea that I told my father I was going to write a book from, but that was more for myself and for him since he was always interested in my writing. The thought of being a writer was nowhere in my mind since I had so many other interests until years later when I decided to write down a list of all the different story ideas I had. To my surprise there were nearly two dozen ideas on that list and it quickly grew. That was when it hit me, when I realized I had always been a writer and all those short stories I had enjoyed writing over the years were just practice."
With a binder filled with over one-hundred storylines and rough drafts she has no shortage of material to keep novels coming for years.

Smashwords Interview

When do you know you wanted to be a writer?
When I was seventeen I kept having a recurring dream and for me the only way to stop having one of my recurring dreams was to play it out as a full story either on paper or in my mind. So I was running through the story idea and I thought about all the other story ideas that I had and I decided to make a list of them. When I was through I had over twenty solid story lines. That's when it hit me, "Maybe this is what I'm supposed to be doing."
How long have you been writing?
I've been writing stories since I could put pencil to paper in elementary school it has always been something that I just did as a part of who I was; who I am.
