Sonia Helbig's Journal: Thoughts on Writing, Books, Movies and Music

Sonia Helbig
I write across genres; articles, educational material, children's fiction, literary fiction, poetry, science fiction, horror, and fantasy.

My big passion is my children's fantasy series which is set in the Australian bush. Book One is complete and looking for a publishing home. Book Two is under revision as part of my Masters of Research in Writing. I'm also working with Wildlife Australia on two picture books for school children; one is a fantasy narrative and the other is an educational information book which will dovetail with the WA Curriculum. I'm excited about these picture books because they will make an environmental difference.

I'm a member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, the Australian Horror Writers Society, the Australian Society of Authors, and the Katharine Sussanah Prichard Writers Centre.

In my past life I wrote under the name Sonia Timms and taught Primary School (kids aged 5-12).
