About the Author

Washington State Indie writer, Sonja Mongar, MFA, has been a traveler all her life marking its imprint on the landscapes, characters, and dramas of her imagination. There will always be a train, a lost highway, a brooding river, and a character adrift in her stories.
An adjunct professor in the Western Connecticut State Low Residency MFA in Creative and Professional Writing program, she mentors new writers. She also just released her first major work on June 3, 2018 through Paradise Alley Publishing - an adult contemporary, literary novel entitled: "Two Spoons of Bitter: A story of love, betrayal and redemption."
Former incarnations include tenured Professor of English at the University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez where she "got schooled" on enduring friendships, the treachery of love, the language of ants, and the art of hurricanes.
A freelance journalist, songwriter and blues harmonica player, she's played and recorded with bands around north and central Florida and Puerto Rico.
Mongar currently writes in the Pacific Northwest, working as an occasional car auction driver while living right next to a river where she can hear the trains at night.
