Sophia Watson hails from Chicago, Illinois, and is thus very familiar with the setting of Silver Lake. She has lived in Missouri as well and has explored a few caves in the Ozarks. Her knowledge of these areas is first hand. Although she writes in the cozy genre, her coziness is more along the lines of a "soft" mystery, more intrigue than blood and guts.
She is a graduate of Boston University (magna cum laude) and attended Harvard for graduate school.She now lives in n. Maine with her huge 11 lb. Yorkie whose nick name is Biggie Smalls.She also writes under the pseudonym of Zara Brooks-Watson and her own name of Cathy Smith.Enjoy!
