GET TO KNOW THIS TALENTED YOUNG AUTHOR
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Dasia Zanders has been putting pen to paper since she was very young and began working on her first novel at the age of twelve. Now, after honing her writing skills through her pivotal adolescent years, she has completed the first two volumes of her trilogy of work about the Cassadine Clan.
Her first novel, The Cassadine Conception, introduces us to a very special group of supernatural teens who live double lives in the human and immortal realms. In the Cassadine Dagger and Ring, Sebastian, Rosalia and Elizabeth, struggle with finding themselves and their place in two worlds as they learn to become leaders and discover how things and others aren’t always as they seem as turmoil unfolds around them.
Dasia’s novels have already earned their rightful place on the shelves of public and high school libraries. They continue to be added to teen / young adult collections across the country and their popularity continues to grow with the anticipated 2017 release of the final installment of her trilogy.
Based upon her everyday experiences, Zanders’ characters are compelling, soulful and relatable. Just like their creator, they’re not your average teens next door. You’re invited to come and step into her spellbinding world where modern life meets an ancient kingdom and magic, intrigue, romance, and treachery abound.
Dasia currently resides in the Orlando, Fl area. Though she is now starting her first year of college, she continues to write daily drawing inspiration from the people, places, the natural beauty, and conversely, the darkness that surrounds her.

Writing, Family, Friends and More
Though writing is a huge part of my day to day life there is a lot more involved with my work and my life. I spend a great deal of my time with my family and my close friends who've become like brothers and sisters to me. Often I'm hanging out at theme parks especially Universal since its one of my favorite parks! I do however love going to pet stingrays at Sea World since they are one of my absolute favorite animals.
When staying in for the day with the people I love we enjoy the more simple pleasures. We talk about books we've read or are currently reading, we love to attempt baking even though it's my best friend Belma who is the real talented one at it and we talk about anything and everything going on in our lives. It's the conversations and new adventures that capture my heart most and it's been an honor to have such incredible people involved in the journey with me. Part of my way of giving back to them is by writing characters and storylines that allows me to share them with other people and also bring awareness to various issues and topics that matter to not only them and myself but to other people around the world.
