About me:

ANASTASIA ASHMAN is the cultural writer/producer behind the Expat Harem book and discussion site. (

The Californian has been on a global rollercoaster: fired in Hollywood, abandoned on a snake-infested island off Borneo, married in an Ottoman palace, interviewed by Matt Lauer on the Today show.
