So cool! I’m not only in NM Entertainment this month, editor Teresa mentioned me and my novel on KRQE. And hey, it’s not published yet (publisher is waiting for the final edits), but you can read the first chapter here.

Technical Writing

I create user manuals, guides, specs, and proposals for everything from computer programs to high-tech equipment. Coming in Summer 2017 – an online course on becoming a Technical Writer.

Custom Training Development

I teach a myriad of courses, I’m also an Instructional Designer (meaning, I create training materials and training courses), and I loath lectures of any kind. Training needs to engage and bring experience to the learner.

Creative Writing

I’m a creative writer and completely support the insanity of other creative writers. My new company will bring back creativity and fun to creative writing! You can check out Plot Duckies for more info.

ABOUT ME (Sonja) I’m an award-winning creative writer, published article writer, and accomplished grant writer, plus I use my writing skills for the powers of good. I don’t just write documents, I make them better.

As an Entrepreneur, I’ve started my new business, Plot Duckies,  creativity events for creative writers. In my spare time, I enjoy playing roller derby with Albuquerque Roller Derby, hiking with my best friend, and soaking up the New Mexico sunshine.
