Sasha Forman is a high school student. In the summer of 2020, Sasha created a program where she taught hoop classes to local children. The grit and determination shown by her young hoopers, in addition to the fun and laughs shared, inspired Sasha to create The Hoop Troop series. She feels grateful to be able to share this experience with her mom, Dana. When Sasha is not writing or hooping, she enjoys reading, acting, and spending time with her family and friends.
As a first grade teacher and lover of children’s literature, it was a dream come true for Dana Forman when her daughter Sasha asked her to co-author The Hoop Troop series. Dana hopes children all over the world will connect with the characters and that it will encourage them all to believe in themselves. Dana loves to spend time with her daughter Sasha, her husband Brett, her son Josh, and take long walks in nature with her dog Daisy.
