Writer, knitter, kitten lover. Vices include chocolate, anime, sleeping in and staying up late, swearing, comma splices, and tea. Credits are few and include lots of yarn and books (those aren’t vices, right?).
Sophia Beaumont was born and raised in Ohio, where she dreamed of living anyplace but.
Surrounded by books from an early age, her first love was historical fiction, but she also has a passion for urban fantasy. Her debut ya novel, THE SPIDER’S WEB, was originally published by Torquere Press in 2016.
After the closure of Torquere at the end of 2016, Sophia turned to self publishing. The Evie Cappelli series (THE SPIDER’S WEB, THE FERRYMEN, and MOREAU HOUSE) is set to complete in early 2018. Her forthcoming YA adventure novel ALL FOR ONE was the #ShoreIndie 2017 runner up and will also be released in 2018.
Sophia is an avid knitter and enjoys designing knitting and crochet patterns. On her long list of current projects is a book of short stories and knitting patterns inspired by the Evie Cappelli series. You can find some of her patterns here. Knitting, textiles, and their impact on community and mental health frequently pop up in her books.
In her spare time she enjoys sewing, binge watching costume dramas on Netflix, and dressing up in historical garb–sometimes for fun, and sometimes to educate. She is a living history volunteer and specializes in the history of women’s rights in late 1800s America.
In addition to rural Ohio, she has also lived in Florence, Italy and Montreal, Quebec, where she hopes to one day return. Presently, she lives and works in Columbus with her partner in crime, Missouri Dalton (aka Ash K. Alexander), and her number one assistant, Hermes the cat, who thinks he is a FANTASTIC editor, but can frequently be found napping on the job.
Hey, writing is hard work.
