Sophie Newton is an author who clocked up 10,000 hours of writing and editing practice before discovering that scientists have debunked the idea that putting 10,000 hours of practice into something makes you an expert. This practice was gained mainly from technical writing in the IT software industry, including work on medical and healthcare systems. She has a degree, some certificates of achievement, and some worthless certificates of attendance. Now she writes non-fiction books.
Turned Brain Books
Sophie’s books are published by Turned Brain Books. The name of this UK imprint was inspired by a line in a novel by Louisa May Alcott:
She is too fond of books, and it has turned her brain.
