S.D. Wasley was born and raised in Perth, Western Australia. She has been composing literary works since before she could write – at five years of age she announced her first poem in the kitchen, improv-style. About 20 years later she earned a PhD in communications. She writes in a range of genres including young adult, paranormal, mystery, romance, and short stories.
Her debut novel was published in early 2015 through Evernight Teen. Today, she lives and writes in a wine region with her partner and two daughters, surrounded by dogs, cats and chickens. She also writes Australian fiction as Sasha Wasley.
