As a shy teenager, Ella Harper found a way to escape by learning
foreign languages, and imagined she might eventually get a
glamorous job speaking French. After completing a BA in French and
Russian Studies, she found herself following in her father's
footsteps into banking instead, seduced by the excitement and
glamour of that world. But after climbing her way to Assistant Vice
President, Ella started idly
mapping out the beginnings of a novel on an old laptop. When she realised her characters were more real to her than dividends and corporate actions ever could be, she left her job to become a writer. Eight years later, and Ella has published four hugely popular novels under the name Sasha Wagstaff.
Pieces of You is her first novel as Ella, inspired by a personal loss and fertility issues suffered by friends.
