Sophie Britten has a rich background and a deep appreciation for the history of Three Rivers and the surrounding mountain areas. She is the third generation of her family to have deep roots in the foothills and mountains. Those roots go back to the 1800's and include cattle ranching, stock packing, as well as very early citrus farming. Her writing credits include family histories and several published manuscripts. Now that she has retired from the ranching life, Sophie has the time to expand her creative talents in the fields of writing, spinning, weaving and knitting. Her favorite place to write or use her spinning wheel is in the Mineral King Valley and she finds that she is more at home in the mountains than in town.
Sophie is already planning her next book; she wants to tell more of the story of the Loverin family and there is also a mysterious early visitor to the Kaweah canyons who needs his own book.
