Sonia’s an author of young adult contemporary stories and a reader of anything she can get her hands on (books, cereal boxes, bumper stickers). Like most writers, she got her start making up stories as a kid. Mostly about penguins and the North Pole. As a teenager she moved on to bad, angsty poetry before creating longer works of fiction. Her first manuscript was an impressive 180,000 words, after which she spent a few years writing short fiction to learn how to say more by saying less.

Her work has appeared in the The Writers Post Journal, Boston Literary Magazine, and the anthology Bearing North. She’s a member of SCBWI and represented by Rebecca Podos of Rees Literary Agency.
