Sophie Whittemore is a Dartmouth Film/Digital Arts major with a mom from Indonesia and a dad from Minnesota. They're known for their Legends of Rahasia series, specifically, the viral publication Priestess for the Blind God, and newest LGBT+ paranormal thriller "CATCH LILI TOO" with NineStar Press. Their writing career kicked off with the whimsical Impetus Rising collection, published at age 17. They grew up in Chicago and live a life of thoroughly unexpected adventures and a dash of mayhem: whether that’s making video games or short films, scripting for a webcomic, or writing about all the punk-rock antiheroes we should give another chance (and subsequently blogging about them).

Sophie's been featured as a Standout in the Daily Herald and

When You Find Your Character’s Voice

There’s this little magical moment when you find a character’s voice. There’s no easy way to find it. No magical formula that works every time. Sometimes, characters come peacefully. Other times, characters gnash and rage until you discover they’ve had a life of their own all along. And, once upon a midnight dreary, a bleary-eyed…

More of Sophie's books…
“To love, to live, to feel so much that your world keeps spinning, faster and faster, in that wonderful, chaotic mess of humanity that you’d so hastily give up. Immortality is overrated. It is nothing but the ability to live through it all and not experience a single thing, to eat everything without tasting it at all." Isak’s eyes shone with a desperate need. He wanted, more than anything it seemed, to be like me, when all I wanted was to be like him.”
Sophia Whittemore, The Funnyman

“Demisexual?” Her face, that beautiful face, remains unchanged. Doesn’t shift to
incredulity or boredom. Just understanding. Beautiful understanding and acceptance. “I
know. I won’t press you into anything you don’t want. I love you, Lili. All of you and all
of how you think and live and breathe. Demisexual just means loving differently, and
there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s your everything I love. Not bits and pieces.”

“My everything?”

She nuzzles her forehead beneath my chin. “Yes, your everything. Silly siren.”
Sophie Whit, Catch Lili Too

“In Sumer, they wrote hymns about liquor and beer. Compared it to the onrush of the
Tigris and Euphrates. Sang odes to the goddess Ninkasi. No matter how long ago or how
recent, people drink to forget.”
Sophie Whit, Catch Lili Too
