What you should, first of all, know about Sophia is that she grew up in England where she studied and worked within Law. After spontaneously moving abroad, this fearless girl resumed her lifelong passion of writing.
She now maintains a blog and writes for a local newspaper covering a wide range of topics. And when she's not working she can be found reading, shopping, exploring and sunbathing at private villa's. You can follow her tweets at @SophiaVAuthor and her blog posts at www.authorsophia.wordpress.com !
My story, BRAVERY, is within the South Louisiana High series, which is a YA/NA series of books about a group of teachers and students whose lives are centered around their town's local high school, South Louisiana High.
Below, you'll find a quick Q&A about BRAVERY.
What is the name of your character? Is he/she fictional or historical?
Gina Russo is the main character's name. She is fictional, unless her living in my head counts as her being sort of real : )
When and where is the story set?
BRAVERY takes place in the year 2015 in a small town called South Louisiana. This little town is an odd place because for the past five years it's been home to an invisible vigilante who locals have nicknamed, "Unseen".
What should we know about your character?
Gina is a talented artist with an incredibly outgoing personality, but at the start of the story she's lost her confidence in herself and her abilities.
Gina's lack of confidence is ruining her life. She's loved film making ever since she was a little girl, but now that she's 22 years old and watching her friends embark on new careers, Gina can't seem to find her confidence as a film maker. She, likewise, can't find the courage to pursue the man she loves. When this man's life is put in jeopardy, Gina has to either quickly find her courage and rescue him or fall into her usual routine of shrinking back and doing nothing.
What is the personal goal of your character?
Gina wants to stop getting in her own way and be brave.
Is there a working title for this novel, can we read more about it?
The working title is BRAVERY and you can learn more about Gina here in a short video where she is interviewed by Karin Greenich, another character within the SLH series.
Gina's novel, BRAVERY will hopefully be released next summer (2015) along with several other books within the South Louisiana High Series.
