The first draft of Le petit Sophie d’Afrique is something I have written for NaNoWriMo, I still have to go over it again, finish writing it, and hopefully publish, but most of it is already there.
This novel is semi-autobiographical as Sophie is a version of me close to reality but far enough that I can write a novel about her. I never actually met the Narrator, but I have told parts of my childhood often enough to know what kind of storyteller I am. The booklet I wrote as an 8 year old actually exists, and was the motivation for writing the book. I feel like this is a story that needs to be told, and I hope some will like reading it.
Also, fun fact about the Narrator: they are neither a man nor a woman.
