This week, Holly chats with Sacha Black about her pen name, Ruby Roe. They discuss:

  • Reasons for launching a pen name
  • What was special about Sacha’s experience of writing this book
  • How she used her Clifton Strengths
  • Researching the market
  • Creating a brand
  • The most enjoyable and effective parts of writing and promoting the book
  • Mistakes, barriers and lessons learned

Sacha Black is a best selling and competition winning author, rebel podcaster, and professional speaker.

She has five obsessions; words, expensive shoes, conspiracy theories, self-improvement, and breaking the rules.

Sacha writes educational nonfiction books for writers and sapphic books for Young Adults. She also writes under a super secret pen name.

When she’s not writing, she can be found laughing inappropriately loud, sniffing musty old books, fangirling film and TV soundtracks, or thinking up new ways to break the rules.

She lives in Cambridgeshire, England, with her wife and genius, giant of a son.
