Sophie Michaels was born in the rolling hills of eastern Pennsylvania, which she’s been told is “very similar” to the French countryside of Lorraine where her family is from. She intends to test this theory someday, but until then she makes her home in central Florida, where she moved at eighteen.
Sophie uses her family’s rich storytelling heritage to create evocative stories in the genres of historical fiction, science fiction, and fantasy. Her works tend to include strong female characters, and she often jokes that this is because if she weren’t a feminist, she’d still be a Mennonite.
Her works have been published in Synergy, the Compleat Anachronist, and several poetry anthologies.
