Sophie has spent years immersed in the study of historical fiction, from a dissertation on how Georgette Heyer helped win World War Two, to time spent in dusty stacks and old tomes losing herself in Regency London while researching this book. Her love and passion for historical fiction bring a breath of fresh air and a contemporary energy to the genre. Sophie grew up in Dorset before moving to south London after university. She spent several years working as an assistant editor in publishing before going freelance. A Lady’s Guide to Fortune-Hunting is her debut novel.
