Sonia Hartl


Welcome to my website!

I’m an author of young adult contemporary, though I sometimes dabble in mystery. I call Michigan home, even though I've lived all over, and hope to visit every state someday. When I'm not writing or reading, I enjoy pub trivia, Disney movie marathons, and doing anything outdoors when it’s fall. Like most writers, I got my start making up stories as a kid. Mostly about penguins and the North Pole. As a teenager I moved on to poetry before creating longer works of fiction. My first manuscript was an impressive 180,000 words, after which I spent a few years writing short fiction to learn how to say more by saying less.

My debut, HAVE A LITTLE FAITH IN ME, will be published with Page Street in Fall 2019, and I’m represented by Rebecca Podos of Rees Literary Agency.
