Sophie Thomas

Sophie Thomas strives to be a Story Authority for authors, editors, and readers. A lover of language, Sophie has studied Latin, Hebrew, and Greek, and has a BA in French from Virginia Tech. As a kid, she woke up early on Saturday mornings to play “Mad Gabs” on the radio and forced her siblings and friends to act out the plays she wrote. She thrives in one-on-one mentorship roles and loves being a part of the inspiration and improvement process. A few years ago Sophie found editing to be a junction of these two passions, story and mentorship. As a certified Story Grid developmental editor, Sophie is passionate about helping authors draft their ideas into stories and beat Resistance to fine-tune their manuscripts.

In addition to coaching authors and editing manuscripts, Sophie is currently writing her first book, an editor’s guide to telling a great murder mystery with Story Grid principles, and producing and raising babies in South Carolina.
