About

Sophie van der Stap

My debut The Girl with nine wigs is the account of my battle against cancer. It travelled far further than I could have ever imagined. The book was published in over 20 countries and adapted into a movie. Since, I've published four more works of fiction and non-fiction. My last novel, The possibility of you, portrays the lovestory of two millenials, dealing with lonesomeness and unrealized dreams in the era of social media and the big city. It takes place in Paris where I lived for many years. 

Currently I write mostly for and about nature. My most recent work is an illustrated short story titled The Girl And The Shark. One of the mock-ups I had made is proudly standing on my desk but the book is still looking for the right publisher / partner.    

I'm now spending most of my time in Amsterdam, dreaming of the sea.
