Sophie Tanner

Tales Of The Extraordinary

About Me

Writer, PR and content consultant, events organiser and sologamist; I am Sophie Tanner. I live in a little nest egg in Kemptown Village, Brighton, with my bumptious labrador, Ella. It is a mere romp from the beach and suits us very well. After all, as Virginia Woolf made quite clear, all one really needs in order to indulge one’s creative impulses is ‘a room of one’s own’.

I’m delighted to announce that my novel, loosely based on my own experience of sologamy, will be out this summer – August 2018! Read more about it here.

I think one of the most important things in life is to ask questions; to be curious about the world around us, to be playful and to challenge systems we don’t believe in. Imagination is a true gift, we must always embrace it, and the reality under our noses can often be even more extraordinary than anything humans could dream up.

I would love to hear from you – whether you have questions about sologamy, my upcoming novel or would like to work together –  let’s talk.

  1. What a refreshing outlook. It makes a pleasant change to visit a site that is not about the ‘cult of the individual’ or some purportedly deep thoughts that the writer dashed off in between one appointment and another, or some alleged facts copied and pasted in an endless merry-go-round of misinformation. The sparseness of this site speaks of a certain clarity of thought and lack of pretension; best of luck with your wedding, and may you be happy and successful ‘together.’
