Sophie D. Crockett graduated from London Universitys Royal Holloway and Bedford New College with a degree in Drama and Theatre Studies.
On leaving university she travelled to Russia as a timber buyer in the Caucasus Mountains but after the birth of her son in 1996 she returned to the East Coast of Suffolk where she spent five years restoring a derelict Ancient Scheduled Monument - a Martello Tower on the mouth of the River Deben.
After moving to a smallholding in Tunstall Forest and with her son now at school, she started a business selling walnut gunstocks from Eastern Armenia.
Currently living in the beech forests of the Montagne Noir of Southern France, she still regularly travels to Armenia buying timber. Her experiences in far-flung places inform much of her writing.
SD Crockett is married to artist, Timothy Shepard, and has two children.
