About Me

SONJA THOMAS (she/her) writes stories for readers of all ages, often featuring brave, everyday girls doing extraordinary things. Raised in Central Florida (the wonderful world of Disney, humidity, and hurricanes) and a Washington, DC transplant for 11 years (go Nats!), she's now “keeping it weird” in the Pacific Northwest.


Ruled by coffee & cats, a few of her favorite things are

  • dancing to music blasting in the living room 

  • traveling to new places and buying a magnet before leaving

  • snuggling with her furry friend, Gabbie Lu (just don't let her roommate's other 3 cats know!)

Her debut middle grade novel Sir Fig Newton and the Science of Persistence releases March 15, 2022 from Aladdin/Simon & Schuster.
