Bio

I am an author and I’ve been writing since I was a wee thing, and publishing since I discovered the internet in 1994 or so.

Half of my week, I am a project manager developing IT solutions. For the rest of the week, weekends, and every waking hour outside work, you can find me scribbling away at many a story that just won’t leave me alone.

So what do I write? Contemporary and urban fantasy have mainly been my playground, but I have done some real world settings as well. I do like mystery and have been reading (and watching) Agatha Christie since I was a child. I’ve also been known to do a bit of poetry.

Style: I have been told I do angst well, so if you want your heartstrings twanged, or your tummy to tie in knots until the end, then I’m your gal. I am, however, a happy ending junkie, although I do throw a hint of realism in there sometimes as well. I like a few twists and turns on the way in some of my plots, although I have written my share of PWPs as well. I have to admit a small obsession with eyes: I believe they are the seat of beauty in a person, so I play with them in creature fic and use them for expression in others – personal hang up, sorry. Also, I have never met a cliché I didn’t like and I am a firm believer that cliché is fine if you do it right.

Writing is a passion and there’s nothing better than writing for an audience. Any writer who says they don’t care about feedback must have had an ego amputation 🙂 If you like my scribbles, I’d be very glad to hear from you.

Sophie's Thoughts and Fumbles

Hi, my name is Sophie Duncan. I'm an author of fantasy, paranormal, horror and erotica. Welcome to my blog. Here I'll ramble on about the books I'm reading and writing, ebooks, publishing and anything else I happen to think of.

Free Book - Trick or Treat Blog Hop

Free Book - Trick or Treat Blog Hop


Greetings and welcome to my blog on the spookiest of spooky days. It is a tradition of Tasha and I that we always produce a free eBook at Halloween. Usually it is for AllHallowsRead, but they don't seem to have updated their website this year, so just think of this as a trick or treat that is better for your teeth.🎃

Beyond Death - Tales of the Macabre

Two tales that look past death into the terror beyond.


The Cup Runneth Over by Natasha Duncan-Drake

The Dark Is RisingThe Dark Is Rising by Susan Cooper
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A classic that can be read again and again

I first read this book when I was doing by gcse English and that is when I fell in love with it. Susan Cooper has a wonderful sophisticated way with words that weaves image and feeling together while still being able to appeal to both the adult and child in me. There is wonder in these pages, and magic and mystery all set in the backdrop of English countryside. As Will learns the truth of himself and the rising Dark, Cooper compells us to read on and discover with him. Don't be put off by him being an 11 year old boy, he needs no ageing up (like the terrible movie) to make him relatable, Cooper's storytelling does that.

A great read for children and adults alike.
