Sophie Tanner lives a mere stone's throw from Brighton beach with her bumptious labrador. She is eternally curious about human behavior and has a strong interest in literature, music and theatre. Her first novel, Happily, is a cheeky, light-heartedly subversive tale about a girl who decides to marry herself. In a perfect example of life imitating art, Sophie married herself at Brighton Fringe festival in May 2015. The ceremony was well-received and aimed to encourage a cultural mind shift; empowering other people to accept and celebrate themselves.
