Continuation of goals



Dear Readers and Listeners! I hope 2022 has been treating you well! I have been hard at work editing and writing new content for you.
I hope you are safe and well, and ready to face what this new year brings.



Ongoing Projects

- My YA dystopian science fiction novel Thou Shalt Not Dream (tentative release late 2022) and my children's book I Really Really Don't Want Braces (release in June 2022) are being edited. 

-I am publishing a short fiction anthology that is going to be released in March 2022. The anthology is available for pre-order. If you love some creepy science fiction and magical realism then my collection is definitely for you. It is available on Amazon as an ebook, but will eventually be available on other platforms and as a paperback. Preorder

- As you know, every month I participate in the Spofest Open Mic Prose & Poetry Rough Draft event. It features us poets and writers reading our published, or our works in progress. Usually, the events are streamed live. However, there was a glitch and so there is no playback for January. But, the reading of my poem "Los Cadejos" can be found here: Spofest




What have you been reading lately? I have finished reading the first two books in the Songs of Chaos series by Michael Miller. While full of traditional tropes, the story breathes new life into dragon-focused fantasies. What have you been devouring from your TBR list?

I haven't been composing much lately, but have been listening to film soundtracks. In particular, I have been listening to the difference between Hans Zimmer's score for the new Dune movie, and Toto's for the 1984 version of Dune. I find both soundtracks to be unique and offer a completely different tone to each film. Are there films you love, that you know were scored by a musician group as opposed to a professional film composer?

As always, feel free to share the newsletter with friends who might be interested in my content. 
Take care all!

Dear Readers and Listeners!
Never dreamed there’d come a day when I’d start a newsletter, but here I am.

I’m Sophie, a more often than not frazzled French teacher, an author and a composer. I have reached the point in my career where I have published my first novel and my first few albums.
So exciting! 

I’ve come a long way from sharing poetry, little stories and piano compositions with families and friends… 

In college I started publishing stories and music in online lit magazines, and now, the plunge: self-publishing my novels and albums.

I’d like to use this newsletter to make connections and share my experiences. 

I’ll do my best to write every month about my journey and the writing/music process and trends in those communities. I’ll be sharing pictures and videos of readings of my works and discussions about a particular writing/music topic.
