Sophie Kinsella studied Politics, Philosophy and Economics at New College, Oxford. She wrote her first novel at 24, when she worked as a financial journalist, but it was published under her real name Madeleine Wickham. The Tennis Party which was a critical and commercial success. She published six more novels under Wickham.

She submitted her first Sophie Kinsella novel to her publishers anonymously. When The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic was released in September 2000 and readers instantly loved heroine Becky Bloomwood. Five more Shopaholic books were published and the first novel was turned into a film. Kinsella has also written four standalone novels. She didn't reveal her identity until Can You Keep a Secret? was published for the first time. She lives in London with her husband and family.
