It was clear immediately that Sophie Rudell was special.

It all began

with an exciting near-death experience in second grade, in which she accidentally aspirated the outer plastic wrapper of a Fruit-By-The-Foot during a book report on The BFG by celebrated children’s author and noted anti-Semite Roald Dahl.

Sophie’s short life began to flash before her eyes. Her teacher attempted the Heimlich Maneuver. Sophie mused whether or not this would be referenced on her headstone, as that would be terribly embarrassing. 

One bronchoscopy, a bad case of pneumonia, and thousands of dollars later, Sophie was released from the hospital. Grateful for the ability to share her exhilarating brush with death, it was then she decided to dedicate her reclaimed years to storytelling, and also trying harder to stay alive. 

Sophie currently acts as the lead writer for In the Keeper’s Shadow, an immersive third-person narrative adventure game produced by Bay Area studio Lonely Egg. Other writing in development spans short-form content for streamers, graphic novels, regular word novels, screenplays, teleplays, stageplays, interactive narratives, prose, essays, and the occasional passive aggressive text message to her housemate. Frequently recurring elements found in her work include loneliness, loss, guilt, and dick jokes. She does not fuck with poetry.

Sophie graduated summa cum laude with a BA in Screenwriting from Loyola Marymount University's School of Film and Television. She currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California in development alongside her freelance work.

In her free time, she parents a one-eyed cat named Pigeon, which has confused more than one receptionist at her veterinarian’s office.

She would love to hear from you (presumably).
