Sophie McKenzie inspires Papplewick boys to become authors!

10th February 2013

Never has 'reading time' been so quiet than after the visit of Sophie McKenzie, author of 'Girl Missing' and 'The Medusa Project' series!

It was a privilege to welcome to Papplewick Sophie McKenzie who has enjoyed great success and critical acclaim in just five years as a published author.


Sophie was born and brought up in London. She has worked as a journalist and a magazine editor, but fell in love with writing after being made redundant and enrolling in a creative writing course. She burst into the publishing world with Girl, Missing her debut novel (published 2006). The Medusa Project series was launched in July 2009, following the thrilling, fast-paced story of four teenagers impregnated with the Medusa gene, a gene which manifests itself in various psychic abilities.

Many thanks as ever to Marlene Dennis for organising Sophie's visit, as well as to Finn McCarthy!
