Sophie Anderson grew up with stories in her blood, from her mother, who is a writer, to her Prussian grandmother, whose own storytelling inspires Sophie's novels.

Born in Swansea but now living in the Lake District with her family, Sophie enjoys the freedom of homeschooling her four children, fell-walking and daydreaming.

Sophie's bestselling novels have been shortlisted for the CILIP Carnegie Medal, the Waterstones Children's Book Prize, the Blue Peter Book Award, the British Book Awards' Children's Fiction Book of the Year, and the Branford Boase Award. Her book The Girl who Speaks Bear won the Indie Book Awards Children's Fiction Book of the Year.

“If you would take the time to listen to them,” Baba repeats calmly, “then you would hear their stories. Their lives would add to yours, and stay with you forever.”
Sophie Anderson, The House with Chicken Legs

“One day I’d like to find the story of my past, and I hope it’s something more magical than being unwanted and abandoned as a baby. I hope it’s a tale filled with wonder, that explains who I am and why I’m different, why I hear the trees whispering secrets, and why I always feel the forest, pulling me in.”
Sophie Anderson, The Girl Who Speaks Bear

“And I love the idea that one day, completely out of the blue, someone or something could come hurtling down from the sky and change my life, for ever.”
Sophie Anderson, The House with Chicken Legs
