About Sonya Jesus
Sonya's a nerd--a cool nerd--who loves science, books, make-up, and unicorns. She even has unicorn slippers and unicorn plushes adorn her office. It's not obsession (or so she says), it's simply an ode to her imaginative side. Storytelling serves as an outlet, which helps balance out the factual, science-driven part of her brain.
Though she's fun-loving, complex-minded, and heart-driven, her philosophy on life is quite simple: Shit happens. Keep going.
When asked to elaborate, she said, "Believing in yourself is probably one of the hardest things to do, but look in the mirror. You're still standing. That's strength. Don't underestimate yourself."
Sonya also believes in fairytales and in the beautiful things a mind can conjure. Storytelling is about empowering the crazy fictional ideas, putting them down on paper, and letting them flourish into a story.

"Cleverly written with twists I didn't see coming. Beautiful storytelling with heartbreaking moments." ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars, Gigi's Book Blog.
"Complex suspenseful whodunit with a psychological thriller edge that kept me guessing the whole way through and left me in awe. Chapter one nearly gutted my heart, though. Ellie and Kace are one of my favorite " ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars, Books & Curls Book Blog.
"Drama, romance, and a quirky, killer nerd who tries to understand the world through a messed-up social experiment. Kind of genius, if you ask me. ALL THE STARS!" Triple S Squad.
"The Bullet Theory is a mashup of genres that I couldn't put down. It taps into the darkness of a tortured heart and how far a parent will go for revenge. As for Kace and Ellie, they have the kind of love that comes after trauma. There's is a surviving death romance and I so like their version of HEA." Goodreads Reviewer.
