Sophie Jordan is a former high school English teacher, she's also the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Avon historical romances. She is the author of the Firelight Saga
Sophie Jordan grew up in the Texas hill country where she wove fantasies of dragons, warriors, and princesses.
Sophie Jordan took her adolescent daydreaming one step further and penned her first romance in the back of her high school Spanish class. This passion led her to pursue a degree in English and History.
A brief stint in law school taught her that case law was not nearly as interesting as literature - teaching English seemed a natural choice. After several years teaching high school students to love ANTIGONE, Sophie decided it was time to pursue her long-held dream of writing. Two years later, she landed her first publishing contract.

Sophie also writes paranormal romances under the name Sharie Kohler.
