This episode is dedicated in loving memory to Thais America Guirigay Aparicio de Sanguinetti. Thais made her earthly transition after this recording on Friday October 6, 2023.
Sophie P. Jupillat Posey was born in Venezuela, adopted by French parents, residing in the United States from three to 28 years of age and now currently residing in France. Sophie’s life has been as complex and rich as her heritage. Her childhood and teenage years were full of amazing adventures such as raising raccoons, learning dual curriculums at the same time and traveling extensively throughout the US and France. However, those years were full of pain due to psychological and physical abuse. She was exposed to the arts early on; which resulted in her falling in love with writing and music.
Sophie went to Rollins College in 2011, and graduated with a Bachelors in English with Honors, as well as minors in both Music and Creative Writing. She started publishing short stories, and her orchestral and piano pieces in literary magazines while she was still in college. She is now an indie author, publishing novels and novellas, in the fantasy and science fiction genres mainly (also some poetry and kid lit). She is also an indie composer and singer-songwriter with three albums in the neoclassical and jazz genres under her belt. She has also scored the soundtracks for a few short films.
Sophie is also a teacher with experience teaching Special Ed and ESE students in English and French. Like most things in her life it was a happy accident that led her from doing private tutoring during and after college, to teaching full-time and getting her certifications and Masters in Elementary Education with a focus on Dual Language writer.
