Sophie spent the first few years of her journalism career as a features writer, chasing stories around the UK and beyond. She stopped over in numerous hotels along the way, many of which were shambolic and memorable for all the wrong reasons. Thankfully the balance has been redressed by fantastic experiences in Kerala, Jamaica, Santorini, Peru and the Amalfi Coast. She is now deputy editor at celebrity weekly magazine Closer. When she isn't working, she hightails it down to Dorset, where she lazes by the fire and eats far too much cheese.
