Sonya Louise Hartnett Edit Profile
Sonya got Bachelor of Arts degree, graduating from Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in 1988.
Sonya's first book, Trouble All the Way, was published when she was just fifteen years old, and since then she has written many more books of fiction.
The novels of Australian writer Sonya Hartnett, although classified for a young adult readership, transcend the genre due to their psychological depth and sophistication. Called intense and often devastating, her works, which include the award-winning Sleeping Dogs, Wilful Blue, and The Devil Latch, explore human character and the differences in the way in which individuals perceive the world around them.
"Love is like moonlight or thunder, or rain on a tin roof in the middle of the night; it is one of those things in life that is truly worth knowing."
"I am dying: it's a beautiful word. Like the long slow sigh of the cello: dying. But the sound of it is the only beautiful thing about it."
"Life is lived on the inside. What's outside doesn't matter."
