Hello and thank you for visiting my website. My name is Sophie Nussle and I’m a writer. I’ve been trying to avoid writing full time for years and doing proper jobs, but the muse keeps drawing me back, so I’ve decided to give up the fight and give her what she wants. I write fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and am trying my hand (in the deep secret of my computer, as I learn the skill) at screenwriting. Most of all, I enjoy stories – hearing them, telling them, writing them. If you have a good story to tell, the likelihood is I will love it too.
I like and read all sorts of fiction, but I have a sneaking preference for the magic realist, the picaresque, the comic – but also the contemplative, the exploratory, the spiritual and the philosophical. Having worked in the past as a humanitarian in war zones, I also like stories set in times of crisis, matching the human spirit against what can challenge it most.
I hope you enjoy what I have to offer. If you read this, why not introduce yourself and tell me a bit about what makes your life worthwhile, what you love, and especially, what you love to read? If you have a website of your own, feel free to place a link here. If you feel like it, comments on any piece I’ve placed on this website are welcome.
