Sonya Annita Song was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on July 7, 1980. Her parents moved to Edmonton, Alberta shortly after, and she has lived there ever since. Her ethnic background is South Korean.

Sonya has two sisters, one older and one younger. Her childhood is full of happy memories of reading, biking, and playing video games. In the summer, Sonya loved to go to the library and take out shopping bags full of books to bring home and read.

From a reader to a writer, Sonya has written poetry on and off for many years but finally decided to turn her passion into a career. She published her first children’s book in January of 2019, and since then, she has released seven more titles for a total of eight original works. Sonya maintains creative control over the entire process through her publishing company, Chinchilla Books.
