Sophie Cousens


Sophie Cousens started her career in television, where she produced, among other things, The Graham Norton Show, Big Brother, Ant and Dec and Russell Howard’s Good News. In 2015 Sophie won the LoveAtFirstWrite competition, run in partnership with Corvus and LoveReading with her debut novel How to Get Ahead in Television. The book was nominated for a RoNA in the category of Best Romantic Comedy.

Her novel This Time Next Year was published by Arrow in 2020, and has been sold into nineteen territories around the world. It was selected as a Good Morning America Book Club pick and went on to become a New York Times bestseller. She has published two subsequent novels; Just Haven’t Met You Yet (2021) with Arrow, and Before I Do (2022) with Hodder. Her next novel The Good Part is set for release in 2023. This Time Next Year, Just Haven’t Met You Yet and Before I Do have all been optioned for film.
Sophie currently lives in Jersey where she now writes full time. She lives with her husband Tim and has two small children who keep her occupied with important questions such as ‘but did Cinderella have a toothbrush?’. She yearns for a time when she will be able to add a miniature dachshund to the party.
