Sophie has had an extraordinary life. She started her career as a jet engine technician in the RAF. After several years abroad, she returned to the UK and in 2000 began transitioning but stopped when her son was born with health problems. She began working as a photographer ending up as the official AFC Bournemouth photographer in the season where they reached the premiership. She transitioned during the summer and the club were a model of how to deal with a trans employee. Life has not been without its difficulties and she talks in her first book about her lifelong battles with mental health. Sophie recently stood as a Labour candidate in the general election. She is currently writing her second balk and is a motivational speaker @sophiecooktalks
