Hello, welcome. I’m Sophie and I write, teach acting, travel while I’m teaching and garden in my allotment. I grew up in Devon with goats. And parents. I currently live near London. I lived in Venice and Rome, where I studied for my degree in Italian. I then trained as an actor. I lived in LA for six years and most recently I returned from nine months teaching in Spain. Now I reside in Hampton where literally nothing happens.
The food element of the blog is largely as a result of my early life cooking for a Contessa in Venice, and revisiting this skill when I lived in LA. Baking became a way to stave off loneliness (my spellcheck changed this to looniness, also true).
This blog though is primarily about writing. Food, travel, gardening and whatever else happens to me are all hopefully interesting hooks to hang the writing on. But writing is the thread.
I hope that this blog brings you some pleasure.
