Sophia Gholz is an award-winning children's book author, music lover, magic seeker, and avid reader.
As a child, Sophia was a passionate reader and artist. When not reading or drawing, she could be found at the farm riding horses or out causing mischief with her brothers.
As an adult, Sophia is still an avid reader, art fanatic, and mischief-maker. When she’s not writing, you can find Sophia reading a book, making art, visiting schools or exploring the outdoors with her kids. 
Sophia grew up in Florida, went to art school in California, and met her husband in Manhattan. She’s now enjoying life back in Florida with her family. 


Sophia is proud to be a founding board member of KidLiteracy, Inc., a nonprofit organization bringing books and author visits to schools in need. For more, visit:
