Sophie Gee always wanted to be a writer.  While in high school, she won a prestigious magazine award in her native Australia, but postponed her desire to write to pursue a career as an eighteenth century scholar.  Now, she's combined the two with her first novel, The Scandal of the Season, which is about the poet Alexander Pope and the inspiration for his famous poem "The Rape of the Lock."
