I was born in Boston and overprotected in the nearby suburb of Newton. I thought I would be an artist when I grew up. I loved sneaking upstairs to a tiny room in our attic, where I could while away the hours drawing pictures of dinosaurs. The summer I turned seventeen, I fell in love with making animated films (not to mention at least a couple of boys). Soon after, I enrolled in Hampshire College and began teaching animation to children all across the country, while I earned my degree, a B.A. in filmmaking and photography. I went on to teach film at Harvard University, which was pretty astonishing, considering I was only a few years older than my students and I probably couldn't have even gotten in to the school if I had applied! Then, I mo ...more

“I know this sounds incredibly lame,
but I don't want losing my virginity
to feel like I'm losing something.
I want it to feel like I'm finding something.
I want sex to be amazing.
I want it to be life-alteringly wonderful.
And I want it to happen with someone I love.”
Sonya Sones, One of Those Hideous Books Where the Mother Dies

“But most days,
I wander around feeling invisible.
Like I'm a speck of dust
floating in the air
that can only be seen
when a shaft of light hits it.”
Sonya Sones, One of Those Hideous Books Where the Mother Dies

“Culture Clash

Dylan says

that I'm Jewish.

I say
okay, but can I
tell her about
the HIV postive thing?

He gives me a look.
I give him one back”
Sonya Sones, What My Mother Doesn't Know
