Welcome! I’m Dasha Maiorova (regarding pronunciation, I’ve gone by every possible variation) – a writer living in Sydney.
I was born in Minsk, Belarus, and have a particular passion for Eastern European writing. I’m currently polishing my first novel Birch: a contemporary gothic with a literary edge set in Saint Petersburg. In 2015, Birch was long-listed for the Richell Prize for Emerging Writers.
My next work, Bury the Sun, examines the fragile intersection between victim and perpetrator after a violent crime rattles a Sydney suburb.
