Sophie Atherton is an award-winning freelance journalist, author and editor with around 20 years experience. She has written for nearly all of the UK's 'broadsheet' newspapers, including The Daily Telegraph, The Times and The Guardian, for various national and regional magazines and for specialist titles such as The Brewer & Distiller International, CAMRA's BEER and The Morning Advertiser. (She writes a monthly column about pubs and beer in the latter).
Her first book, 30-Second Beer, which she edited and co-wrote, was published by Ivy Press March in 2019.
Although a great deal of her freelance writing has been about beer, she is returning her attention to writing about nature and environmental issues - of which she also has many years of experience.
