It was clear early on that Sophie Rudell was special, following an exciting near-death experience at age seven in which she accidentally aspirated an entire plastic Fruit-By-The-Foot wrapper during class.
Her short life began to flash before her eyes. Her teacher fumbled to start performing the Heimlich. Sophie mused whether this would be referenced on her headstone, as that would be terribly embarrassing.
One bronchoscopy and thousands of dollars later, she found herself grateful for the opportunity to share her experience. She decided then to dedicate her life to storytelling, and also trying harder to stay alive.
Sophie writes screenplays, stageplays, teleplays, video games, prose, and the occasional passive aggressive text message to her housemate. Frequently recurring elements found in her work include loneliness, loss, guilt, and dick jokes.
Sophie received her BA in Screenwriting from Loyola Marymount University's School of Film and Television. She currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
