Sophia Bennett is the winner of the RONA Romantic Novel of the Year 2017, with Love Song, her 7th book for teens. She says: “I’m inspired by creativity, courage and kindness – so I explore the worlds of artists, musicians, adventurers and friends who change the world. If you like tucking yourself under a blanket with a hot chocolate and a book, and reading way past your bedtime, then my books are for you.”
Sophia won the Times/Chicken House Fiction competition in 2009 with her debut novel, Threads, set in London’s fashion world and since been published in over a dozen languages. Her YA fiction includes The Look, You Don’t Know Me (shortlisted for the Booktrust Best Book Awards in 2014), The Castle and Love Song.
Her latest historical romance, Following Ophelia, set in Pre-Raphaelite London, was published in 2017 with Stripes Publishing.
Sophia lives and writes in London.
