Sophie Jordan Anthologies
In college, she leaned into her strengths by pursuing English and History. Sophie eventually enrolled in Law School and, for a moment, she was tempted to stray from her destined path. However, the detour did not last long. For all that case law had to offer, she did not find it as engaging as literature.
The author changed careers, becoming an Engish teacher. For years, Sophie used her talents to teach high school students. While she had a passion for storytelling, she couldn’t find the time to pursue it.
Everything changed when her first child came along. Sophie abandoned her teaching job. She decided to give full-time writing and publishing a chance. Getting her foot through the door was far from easy.
When she wasn’t querying agents, Sophie was out participating in contests all in the hopes of using the opportunities to secure a business relationship that would give her the opportunity to bring her stories to the world. It took Sophie two years to land an agent.
Her hard work paid off when that same agent proceeded to sell her first novel within two weeks. Even more shocking for the author was the awards recognition she received following the publication of her first novel.
Her second novel came along soon after and it secured a place on the USA Today Bestseller list, proving to Sophie once and for all that she had made the right decision to dedicate her time to writing and publishing.
While she is primarily known for her contemporary and historical romance, the author has also written several YA novels using the Sharie Kohler pseudonym. Sophie started reading YA because she wanted a break.
While she enjoyed writing romance, Sophie was concerned that the process of writing so many romance novels would tire her out. This compelled her to find novels outside the genre that she could read to keep her imagination fresh.
She settled on YA. The genre shocked her. First of all, it was completely different from romance. Secondly, it was highly versatile. The stories could take any shape the author wanted. The genre was not restricted by any significant tropes and themes.
Once she fell for YA, Sophie decided that she had to contribute her own stories to the genre. The author has admitted that writing in two different genres is somewhat challenging, primarily because she has to make certain changes to her voice.
With YA, Sophie is more colloquial. However, for the author, the challenge of writing YA is no different from the obstacles she encounters whenever she writes romance. Even though she has published so many novels, whenever Sophie sits down to write a new book, she has certain barriers that she must overcome because she is starting over from scratch.
Sophie Jordan Awards
Sophie received a Romantic Times Reviewers Choice Nomination in 2006 (Best First Historical).
Best Sophie Jordan Books
The author has described the business side of her publishing career as a roller coaster that is occasionally disappointing. Some of Sophie’s best novels include:
Firelight: Descended from dragons and capable of taking human form, Jacinda made a mistake, one that forced her to flee with her family. She must adapt to her new life in the mortal world. Will has made the transition easier.
Handsome and elusive, he is everything Jacinda wants. But she also understands that they can’t have a future. Will isn’t like other boys. He comes from a family of hunters, enemies to Jacinda and her kind. Jacinda knows that she should steer clear of Will. Unfortunately, he is her only hope.
Vanish: Things between Jacinda and Will ended poorly. Jacinda had to go home to hide behind the protection her Pride offered. And for her actions, she was met with hostility. Jacinda has to prove her loyalty once more. But she can’t forget Will.
She knows that he’s been shaded. He doesn’t remember what happened between them. But that hasn’t stopped Jacinda from yearning for him. When an opportunity to ease the ache in her heart comes, Jacinda doesn’t hesitate to take it.
