Before developing a passion for middle grade and young adult fiction, Sonia had several careers–as a professional singer, a financial analyst, a Tony-nominated Broadway producer and an advocate for arts and Native traditions. Of Swiss, British and Syro-Lebanese ancestry, she was born in Egypt and came to the U.S. as a child.
She and her amazing dog Ziggy are excited about the 2021 launch of Red Dove, Tell Truth to Darkness, the second book in the Red Dove Trilogy. It launches in September, and is available for preorder now. Red Dove, Tell Truth to Darkness has already been honored as a 2021 International Book Awards Finalist in Children’s Fiction.
Red Dove, Listen to the Wind, the first book in the Red Dove Trilogy, is her first middle-grade novel, and has won multiple awards, including American BookFest Best Book of 2019 winner, Nautilus Book Silver Award, Moonbeam Children’s Book Award.
