Sophie Irwin Books & Biography


Sophie Irwin grew up in Dorset before moving to south London after university. She spent several years working as an assistant editor in publishing before going freelance.

Sophie has spent years immersed in the study of historical fiction, from a dissertation on how Georgette Heyer helped win World War Two, to time spent in dusty stacks and old tomes losing herself in Regency London while researching this book. Her love and passion for historical fiction bring a breath of fresh air and a contemporary energy to the genre and Sophie hopes to transport readers to a time when ballrooms were more like battlegrounds.

<i>A Lady’s Guide to Fortune-Hunting</i> is Sophie’s debut novel and it has already sold in twenty territories worldwide.
