“A Day in the Life” with young Calgarian Author Sophie Torro

Sophie Torro is a young Calgarian author. She has published 12 fantasy adventure novels for the 7–12-year-old demographic, wrote and digitally illustrated an educational children’s book (included in the grade two curriculum in Honolulu, Hawaii), and is a proud contributing Travel Writer for TraveLife Magazine, one of North America’s largest travel magazines. Each of her five published articles are featured as ‘Editor’s Choice’.

Writing begins in the morning. Most days, she will write around 2,000 words, accompanied by the plushies at her desk. Her hobbies include hiking, so you will find her enjoying parks throughout the city and in the mountains. Or she will be indoors caring for her plants. She’s especially proud of taking avocado seeds and growing them into trees. Her oldest is already 8 feet tall!

When Sophie isn’t writing or studying graphic design at the University of Calgary, she creates content for her 16.7K YouTube subscribers. She also designs book covers for others (including a 90-year-old grandpa who just published his first book!), motivates young people at schools, community centres, or you’ll find her signing her books at various markets throughout the city.
