About The Author

Sonia was born in Melbourne, Australia in 1973. She spent her life growing up in an inner city of Melbourne, to a migrant family from Italy.

At age ten Sonia developed a passion for writing and making up stories. She loved to present her stories to her class and was told by one teacher that she would be an author one day. This was her dream until the focus of her life suddenly changed.  She completed year 11 and 12, and later gained a diploma in welfare studies. She has spent the majority of her adult life working for the most disadvantaged members of the Australian community.
