About mwsasse

2014-07-14 20.03.18Hello everyone.  My mwsasse website is meant to establish creative connections with other writers, producers, and lovers of good storytelling.

I’ll be writing about writing, publishing, history, culture, and life. I’d love to hear your thoughts as well!

I jumped into the indie author life in December 2012 when I published my first novel, “Beauty Rising”. Since then I have published my second novel, The Recluse Storyteller, in October 2013, and I released my third novel, The Reach of the Banyan Tree, in June of 2014. I published my first Christmas story, If Love is a Crime, in December 2014, and my fourth novel, A Love Story for a Nation, is set for a mid-2015 release. My fifth novel is well underway and should be arriving by the end of 2015.

A little about myself: I’ve spent most of the last two decades living overseas in Vietnam and Malaysia.  I’m currently living in Penang, enjoying the tropical weather and the creative writing energy this setting provides.

Besides writing novels, I’m also bonkers about drama and musical theatre. I love writing 2014-05-28 18.03.22plays and have written and produced more than 10 full-length productions. I’m especially in love with the short play format and have written nearly 40 short plays over the last few years. They are on average about 10 minutes long. I’ve even won a couple awards for those.

  • 2013 Best Script Award for my play “No, in Spite of Itself.” (penangpac Short & Sweet Festival
  • 2014 Best Script Award for my play “A Pinch of Fate, A Shot of Destiny” (penangpac Short & Sweet Festival)

“A Pinch of Fate” is also being featured in the Sydney Short & Sweet Festival in February 2015.

I’d love to connect with you about writing, producing, and any other related fields.
