She is the author of the Xeric Award winning The Deformitory as well as her current series of fairy-tale imbued minis, The Lettuce Girl.  She spends her days working in publishing and her evenings preoccupied with monsters, braids, nibs, ink, towers, paper, and pondering the way a thick turtleneck folds over.

Editor's note: I met Sophia through a friend of mine, Eric Collins, and because we both received a Xeric grant in the same cycle. Her Xeric comic, The Deformitory, is stunningly sad, adorable, funny and poignant all in one package. But, I have to say, her latest ongoing series, The Lettuce Girl, is even better. We are usually table buddies at SPX and King Con, where she also sells panties and onesies featuring that adorable little Heart Monster dude up there. Did I just say 'adorable' twice in one paragraph? I guess I did.
