Meet Sophie: children’s author, tea drinker, cat whisperer. Her debut, The anatomy of a PIGEON, was written on the MA in Writing for Young People at Bath Spa University.
Before her BA in Creative Writing, Sophie wrote as a hobby, carrying a notepad and pen wherever she went just in case inspiration came knocking. Her favourite children’s book is The BFG by Roald Dahl, as it taught her to believe in her own imagination; something she thinks we all need to do.
When Sophie is not writing, you’ll probably find her on a mountain, with good friends and a flask of tea, or on a bike, exploring local trails and seeking inspiration.
About The Anatomy of a Pigeon
Meet Piper, she’s a PIGEON: a Pretty Intelligent Girl EveryOne kNows. Meet Erin, she’s a SWAN: Socially Weird and Awkward Nobody. Best friends forever. Or, at least, they used to be, before ‘it girl’ Lucy handed down her crown as Head PIGEON to Piper.
Enter Ethan: Erin’s older brother, captain of the school rugby team, and Piper’s dream boy. With Piper’s life looking more perfect than ever, and Erin quiet and comfortable away from the limelight, the girls appear to have accepted their estrangement, and to have year eleven sussed. But what happens when the PIGEON moves in with the SWAN?
