I have so many great things to thank you for – from the pleasure of seeing my book in print, to a book signing, talks across the UK and seeing my work reviewed in the Mail on Sunday. None of this would have happened without you taking a punt on my work, and it’s something that I (and I’m sure many other writers you’ve helped) will always be grateful for.    Nick Holland, author of In Search of Anne Bronte

In you, Sophie, I have found not only a guide but a friend. Thank you for, after a life time of writing, turning A 1950s Housewife into the most commercially successful book I’ve ever written.   Sheila Hardy, author of A 1950s Housewife and A 1950s Mother

You have always been professional, supportive, kind and encouraging.  All of my books have benefited tremendously from your brilliant insight and innate, perceptive wisdom.  You have been an absolute joy to work with, and your advice and guidance has always been spot on.    Penny Starns, author of Odette: World War Two’s Darling Spy, Blitz Children, Surviving Tenko and many others

It has been brilliant and fun to work with you and I will truly NEVER forget all the care and effort you put into [the book].   Heather Holden-Brown, literary agent

I have really enjoyed working with you Sophie. Your sensitivity, vision and efficiency have made you a dream editor… Throughout our time working together I have felt we were on the same wave-length and so it was stimulating bouncing ideas back and forth.   Rachel Trethewey, author of Pearls before Poppies
