Meet the Author...

Hi, I am Sophie McKay,

Thank you so much for visiting my bookstore.

I am an avid gardener and an emerging author in the field of urban gardening, permaculture, and sustainability. My work explores self-sufficiency, foraging, food forestry, and food preservation, with a view to helping readers gain independence and help repair the planet little by little.

My love of food begins in the ground and ends with the happy faces around the dinner table. I am an avid cook, always looking for new ways to bring out the natural flavors of my homegrown produce and preserve my bounty for the off-season.

I live in the countryside with my husband, my two children, and our beloved rescue cat, who show me every day what’s truly important in life.
