I am a journalist and novelist, and have had seven novels published, including The School Run, which was a best-seller when first published, and became a best-seller in ebook format when it was republished by Corazon books in 2012. My other novels include The Wedding Party, which was short listed for the RNA Love Story of The Year. My first short story collection, Tales from the Heart, was recently published to critical acclaim and great success in Amazon's short story chart. My latest novel is the witty romance Divorce For Beginners. In between novels, I write short stories and have had hundreds published in magazines such as Woman's Weekly, Woman's Own and My Weekly. I also gives regular talks/workshops at bookshops and literary festivals including Winchester and Guildford. Until my recent move to Devon, I tutored at Oxford University and West Herts College. For three years, I was writer in residence at HMP Grendon, a high-security male prison. I have also appeared several times on breakfast television and Woman's Hour, including a Christmas programme on rivalry in the kitchen! In 2005, I won the Elizabeth Goudge Short Story Trophy and was a runner up in the Harry Bowling Prize. I am also a member of the Romantic Novelists Association; Women in Journalism; the Society of Women Writers and Journalists and the National Union of Journalists. My website is: www.sophieking.info
