Irish best-selling author soars the US & UK charts with latest book
Irish Author Sophie Rose Williamson is on cloud 9 after her latest book “GYPSY” soared to No 16 in the United states charts recently. The book was the eagerly anticipated sequel to Sophie’s best-seller “here come the girls” which also reached dizzy heights internationally.
The Cork based author who has a strong military background first came to the public’s attention writing under her real name Valerie O’Brien with “In The Shadow of Men” that tells her story of Irish military life.
When asked how she felt about having chart success so early after the book launch, Sophie said “ I'm really happy GYPSY is doing so well at the moment, turning from combat author to chicklit lady was no easy task, I locked myself away for almost 4 years writing this but readers now know there are more sides to me than meets the eye and I hope they enjoy it”.
