About the Author

Sonja Ciotti's poetry career started in 1993 when a poem about a sunset she wrote as a fourth grader from rural Illinois was chosen as an official selection for a youth poetry anthology. Indeed, a poet was born. It wasn't until she was much older and wiser (so probably in sixth grade) that she realized that the work of every one of her fourth grade classmates who wrote a poem had been included in the anthology as well. Too late; the fourth grade spark ignited a lifelong love for reading and writing poetry. In her undergraduate studies, Sonja minored in English and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. She continued on to earn her Master of Science degree in Marketing and currently works in the field of marketing and advertising, specializing in branding and graphic design. But in the quiet moments, Sonja can be found jotting down her poignant and humorous life observations, patching them together in the most beautiful artistic medium - the written word. Sonja lives in Raleigh, NC, with her wonderful husband, Zak.
