ABOUT SOPHIA GHOLZ

  • Sophia Gholz is an award-winning author of nonfiction and fiction books for children. Her debut book, THE BOY WHO GREW A FOREST: The True Story of Jadav Payeng, is a nonfiction picture book biography featuring a STEM-theme. 
    Sophia has always been a passionate reader and artist. As a child, when not reading or drawing, she could be found at the farm riding horses or out causing mischief with her brothers.
    As a grown up, Sophia is still an avid reader, art fanatic, and mischief-maker. When she’s not writing, you can find Sophia on Twitter, in her cave (aka office), speaking at schools, or running around after her kids, dogs or any combination of the two.

    Sophia grew up in Florida, went to art school in California, and met her husband in Manhattan. She’s now enjoying life by the beach with her family.
