Welcome, Sophie Croft
How would you describe your writing style in only three words?
Sophie: Fantasy. Fairy tale. Absorbing.
If you could have a relationship with one of your fictional characters who would it be and why?
Sophie: The kraken; communicating non verbally with a cephalopod would be a fantastic experience!
If you had to exist for a week in one of your books … which one would it be? Would you be a central character or simply watch the story unfold from the sidelines?
Sophie: Indigo’s Deep. I’d like to be the mysterious sea witch.
Dead or alive literary dinner party: who would you invite, and what would you serve?
Sophie: Arthur C Clark, Maya Angelou, Heinrich Harrer, Isabel Allende, Oscar Wilde, Ursula Le Guin, Shakespeare, Anne Frank. Lots of vegetarian Indian dishes.
If you had to write in a different genre which would it be and why?
Sophie: Historical. Bringing history alive through a good story is such a magical and worthwhile thing to do.
What do you dislike the most about being an author?
Sophie: What sitting at the keyboard does to my body.
Favourite word? Sophie: Believe
