A popular children’s author who we were delighted to have had come in to speak about her life as a writer, her long journey to publication and the inspiration behind her books. Sophia grew up travelling around the world as an army child. From a young age she aspired to be an author, but it wasn’t until 2009 that her first book was published, when she won the Times/Chicken House Children’s Fiction Competition with her book Threads. She has since published several books for children, including The Look and Love Song; winner of the 2017 RoNA Romantic Novel of the Year. Today, her books have been published as far afield as Brazil, Australia and Japan.
