I really like the name of my sleuth: Sasha Jackson. I like how the first and last names sound together.
I chose "Jackson" as Sasha's surname as a nod to my father, whose name is Jack. And I've just always liked the name "Sasha" (but don't like the way it looks when a "C" is added to it, as in Sascha - ugh). I just like the way the name sounds... but...
I pronounce her name so that it rhymes with dash or bash or hash or sash. Sa-sha. A lot of people (readers and/or fans) will talk to me about the books and say they really like the character "Saw-sha" or "Sahhh-sha" which to me is a different name.
So, I'm just saying, it's Sasha.
