Sonia Simmons


Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was my first introduction to poetry. I have been writing poetry ever since. I am a poet who, in the past four years, has begun to write short stories that include fictional tales about cats and dogs. Mrs. Bentley's Cat is my latest completed work.

I am a native Washingtonian, living in Killeen, Texas. Although I did not complete college, I attended Montgomery college in Takoma, Maryland and the USDA Graduate School in Washington, D.C. I am the mother of three and grandmother of four.

Former President William Clinton sent me a thank you letter and A Day of Mourning Proclamation for my poem, A Few Days On This Earth. This poem is given to parents of stillborn children throughout the country by bereavement organizations.

Diamond BeAnce Bobbett and I met when she was nine years of age and we have become collaborators on two books. Our first work was The Back Yard Encounter: Jacks, Mrs. Rogers and the Skunk and Mrs. Bentley's Cat is our current illustrated book. Diamond is a gifted artist who enjoys illustrating, dancing and music. She has illustrated three books at this time.

Patrick is a homeless Tabby kitten that comes to know the love of the Bentley family. He is greeted by his neighbors, played with by the children and always loved and cared for by Mrs. Bentley. When he is injured in a cat fight, Mrs. Bentley nurses him back to health and cooks for him the fish that he dreams of eating, mackerel. Mrs. Bentley's Cat is enjoyable reading for readers 8-12 years old.
