Have you read my pieces on
Welcome to the wonderful world of SOPHIE PARKIN where everything that glisters is gold. Here you can discover some things you never wanted to know about Sophie and her books, novels and poetry, and maybe, some things you did (in my diary) (just don't tell my mum!)and also in my recent pieces in . Sebastian Horsley and Nina Hamnett. There is also a true story about my trials and tribulations in Morocco when my father tried to exchange me for 50 camels. Talking of Tangier....
Also New is the German version of French for Kissing -otherwise known as Schokoprinzen Kussen Besser- is that a literal translation? So what does it mean???

My last book  Bazaar Night and Camel Bites, came out on 15th September. Lily Lovett is back. Escaping from a calamitous Christmas- would you ever want your Maths teacher to date your Mum, and meet your Dad? Exactly.
 Lily is away being naughty in Tangier, Morocco with it's faded spy past  mysterious clubs, romantic souks and strange food and customs. Hilariously educational. Buy it at

BEST OF FRIENDS came out on 28th September. These are interviews that I did with 10 teenage girls and 10 female role models.

French For Kissing is published in German, Malaysian and will be available soon in Turkish

Once upon a time you could have seen me dancing and dj-ing at The Parkin Lot, Every Tuesday 9-1. Soho's first multigenerational  40's 50's 60's 70's  disco at

The Green Carnation, 5 Greek St, Soho, London. BUT No Longer. Relocation and laziness made this impossible.

Or see me talking at The Southbank about my favorite novelist - Carson McCullers.
AND lots of other poems etc on YouTube

 And.... LATEST NEWS  Sophie is still happily married to her very handsome and lovely Dutch husband but now lives by the sea in Deal Kent. 

She is currently writing The Colony Room Club1948-2008 - the history of Soho's bohemian club - to be published in December 2012.Very Exciting. A website with lots of scandalous gossiip from 1948

When in London occasionally its usually interviewing past members of the Colony OR on Chelsea Arts Club business as Im on the council VIP!

Endorsing the seaside over and above London, 'there is always a horizon to look at, the sea is never boring'...

Hoping you are all happy and the best you can be.


PS mum, got put on the civil pension list by the queen. this is apparently the highest honour awarded to a mortal, she's still annoyed she's not called Lady Molly so she can be like an Anthony Powell character.her first e-book Love:All
