Sonia Velton grew up between the Bahamas and the UK with a British mother and a Sri Lankan father. She has travelled widely since then, including a stint at the European Parliament in Luxembourg as a Robert Schuman Scholar.
After graduating from university with a first in law, she got sucked into the legal world and qualified as a solicitor at an international law firm. She soon realised that corporate law was not for her and spent the next seven years specialising in human rights and discrimination law.
Sonia relocated to the Middle East in 2006. Eight years, and three children later she then returned to the UK and now lives in Kent. Sonia used her career break to establish her family and write her first novel. Now that her youngest child is almost at school she hopes to devote herself to writing full time.
