Sonia Young grew up on a hobby farm at Vineyard in the Hawkesbury Area of NSW. After getting married she moved to a nearby suburb and raised three children. She discovered the gift of poetry at the age of forty four. Embracing this gift she went on to write over 30 poems. Most of which are contained in this book. Being the first book of poems she has written she hopes it will be well received.
Reciting her poem “It’s the first ANZAC day” at the Dawn service in Kurrajong NSW, 2018 to over 1000 people has been one of the highlights of her writing career. It was very touching with many shedding a tear or two. She still lives in the Hawkesbury and attends Hawkesbury Valley Toastmaster meetings where she can practice reciting her poems in front of an audience.
