At the age of five, Sonya Kate Childers knew she wanted to become a writer. Through a merchant-sponsored contest, her short stories were printed in the local newspaper.

It wasn't until Sonya saw her first "by-line" in print she knew what her destiny would be. However, if you had told her then that she would be taking pictures with Gene Hackman, Steve Azar, Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, appear on PrimeTime Live with Jay Schadler or attend fabulous parties with Kathryn Falk, her reply would have been, "You're crazy!".
