Sophia Tobin was born and raised on the Isle of Thanet in Kent. Having graduated from the Open University, she moved to London to study History of Art, then worked for a Bond Street antique dealer for six years, specialising in silver and jewellery. Inspired by her research into a real eighteenth-century silversmith, Tobin began to write The Silversmiths Wife, which was shortlisted for the Lucy Cavendish College Fiction Prize, judged by Sophie Hannah and Professor Janet Todd.

By day she works for the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths; by night she is writing her second novel. She lives in London with her husband.

Sophia Tobin recommends
The Lost Lights of St Kilda (2020)
Elisabeth Gifford
"A beautifully written and heart-rending story of love, loss and redemption."
The Corset (2018)
The Poison Thread

Laura Purcell
"The Corset is a sharp-edged, emotionally freighted mystery, rooted in the pitch-black darkness of Victorian poverty. An intriguing, page-turning gothic tale of murder and the supernatural."
The Coffin Path (2018)
Katherine Clements
"A beautifully written, nuanced ghost story which packs a powerful emotional punch. Katherine Clements expertly layers her story of the Yorkshire moors with a burgeoning sense of evil and impending emotional crisis. A haunting and evocative gothic story for a winter's evening."
