Jasna Šebjanič Pupis was born in 1955 in Belgrade, at the time still the capital of Yugoslavia, where her father worked as a diplomat. Shortly after they transferred to Murska Sobota, her father’s home town, where she spent her childhood and teenage years. It was here she discovered her love for writing, publishing multiple stories in the local newspapers at a very young age.

She graduated in psychology which led to her first job as a psychologist at the Juvenile Detention Centre where she worked for 17 years. During these years she helped children coming from extremely difficult social situations, broken homes, escaping physical and mental abuse. She has so far published three books.

Two are dedicated to her years working at the Juvenile Detention Centre, while the third one, which has been translated into Italian and English, is a product of many years of experiences working as a psychologist at one of the Primary Schools in Postojna, the town most famous for its Postojna Cave. Sally, the Aquatic Salamander, is an educational story, looking to evoke in children their natural empathy for the environment and caring for all living creatures.
