Hello! My name is Zoë Jasko, and I am a writer and performer. I live in Hertfordshire with my husband and 4 children. I am a trained singer, and I am co-founder and creative director of Hertfordshire based Felici Opera.
I love telling stories and creating characters, whether that’s on the page or on the stage. It makes me happy to bring them alive to you in talks and readings.
My first book, What the Wind Saw:Short Stories from the Heart of Hertfordshire was published in 2022. It is a collection of stories inspired from my walks in the countryside around where I live.
My second book, my debut novel, Hope is Daffodil Bright is a second world war book, inspired by a box of letters from soldiers I inherited from my grandmother who ran the WVS canteen in Grantchester near Cambridge. It will be released 1st March 2023.
My third book, a second collection of (longer) short stories, A Portrait of My Pet inspired by paintings of imaginary pets, will be released 1st September 2023.
My fourth book is somewhere in my head waiting to find the light of day!
