Greetings readers, writers, and history lovers of every type. My name is Sophie Perinot, and I am a multi-published novelist. Have a look in the “My Books” section of this website to discover my work.
I have three grand passions – writing, family, and history. As an author I draw upon these to write stories set against the past exploring issues and feelings so essentially human that they transcend any particular era.
When I pick up a novel I want to be diverted. When that novel takes me to
the past I also want to learn about the period in which it is set and the historical figures who people it. But most of all I seek stories and situations that resonate in my own life, giving me a better understanding of myself and others. What I desire myself as a reader I seek to provide to others as a writer. I hope that my novels will entertain, educate and elucidate.
This website is designed to supplement my books – offering you a behind-the-scenes glimpse of my writing process, extra information on settings and historical subjects relevant to my novels, and links to additional resources. If you have wandered here as a fellow writer, I hope you will find my links to writing resources and writing-centric blog entries useful in your on-going creative journey. If you visit as a reader, please be in touch. I am always interested in readers’ thoughts and reactions to my work.

Ribbons of Scarlet is a timely story of the power of women to start a revolution—and change the world.
In late eighteenth-century France, women do not have a place in politics. But as the tide of revolution rises, women from gilded salons to the streets of Paris decide otherwise—upending a world order that has long oppressed them. [more]
