My books dive into intimate stuff we don’t usually talk about

In my books I combine the deeply personal with the sociological and cultural. I look at taboo topics that we rarely speak about. My readers tell me they have a “Thank god it’s not just me” reaction to my work.

My first two books are books of essays. The upcoming book is a memoir.

My books are available on Amazon and wherever fine books are sold.

Quirkyalone: A Manifesto for Uncompromising Romantics

“Of all of the books that I’ve read, Quirkyalone has definitely been one of the most important books for affirming my journey and cultivating self-acceptance. I’ve picked it up at many different moments in my life and it always brings so much wisdom and joy. So thank you for all that you’ve created, because it’s truly a gift!”

Caroline Leamon 


Quirkyalone has been one of the books/forces/movements that saved me after my “big” breakup. It also helps me silence well-meaning people who are telling me what I’m doing with MY love life. It’s so helpful to know that there are people out there who agree that just because I’m single doesn’t mean finding a partner should be my second full time job.”

“I was very much a wallflower and refused to do anything involving dancing. However, after reading the Quirkyalone book and becoming much more comfortable with the idea of who and what I was, my self-confidence rose. The very next social thing I went to, a wedding, I was dancing barefoot on the dance floor most of the evening.”

“I’m a sociology professor, and one of the courses I teach is Deviant Behavior. My first unit in that course is on various forms of non-conformity, and the main thing I try to get across is how people who question assumptions and traditions and who don’t fit in or follow all of the rules or norms can have a positive impact on society. One of the texts I require for this unit is your book, Quirkyalone.”

To-Do List: From Buying Milk to Finding a Soul Mate, What Our Lists Reveal About Us

““Sasha Cagen’s glazomania (list obsession) spawned a to-do list empire, from a blog to a book to a magazine, where she celebrates these scribbled bullet points to ourselves.”
