Meet Sophia Evans
Sophia Evans is a children’s book author, teacher, avid star gazer, enthusiastic gardener, and all round nerd. She writes children’s picture books, school readers, poetry and short stories. She reads, a lot. Sophia has always loved reading, writing and sharing stories and is always happy to talk about books.

In 2023, she published a short story titled Boots On World in Forbidden Doors: An Anthology through LorikeetInK.
Sophia tends to get lost in her writing, with numerous writing projects on the go simultaneously. However, she is brought back to reality by her dog who wants wants a pat or wants to go for a run. Sophia’s dog, Leroy, is a 55kg Bull Arab Cross who celebrates his birthday in September. He was rescued in 2004 and continues to need rescuing from ferocious things like bees, sticks and noisy vacuum cleaners. Leroy is a giant, squishy-faced sook who likes Sophia as she continues to drive him to dog parks as well as taking time out from her writing to feed him.
Sophia has a Bachelor of Learning Management from CQU, a Certificate II in Information Technology, and a Blue Card. She is just over half way through a Masters of Creative Writing. If you look deep in her wallet, you will find a Zing membership card, a Ravenclaw badge and a Star Wars sticker.
Being an Experienced Senior Teacher in the Queensland primary school system, Sophia uses her evenings and weekends to fuel her writing habit. During the day, she teaches and delights in seeing her student’s successes; especially when they are writing achievements.
Sophia has worked internationally and travelled extensively, all of which (she says) makes her a better writer.
