Sonja Stone

Author of "Dark Divide" and "Desert Dark," Sonja Stone collected intel on psychology and creative writing from Washington College, trained at Le Cordon Bleu for a cover job as head pastry chef and completed a handful of courses at the same survival school where Tom Hanks prepared for Cast Away. Currently, she's raising two covert agents masquerading as typical college kids. Just to be safe, Sonja's learned to throw knives, fire guns and navigate the desert, because... well, you never know.
