Sonja McGiboney spent her childhood in Stowe, Pennsylvania. She obtained an undergraduate degree in piano pedagogy from West Virginia University. She met and married Dale McGiboney, becoming an army spouse of 25 years. She has two wonderful children, Rachel and Ryan and is now living with Dale and Jazzy in Smithfield, Virginia. She loves taking photos and writing Jazzy’s books.
Sonja started her career as a photographer while escorting her son to downhill mountain bike races. In March of 2015, Sonja and Dale adopted a puppy. With her love of clicking, she proceeded to click 1,000 pictures of Jazzy in her first year. Thus, "GROWING UP JAZZY" was created. Family and friends liked the book so much, they urged Sonja to create more.
Sonja's books are full of delightful, color photos and a story line or description that is easy for kids to follow. She has self-published six books so far: GROWING UP JAZZY, COUNTING DOWN JAZZY, ABC JAZZY, LITTLE RED JAZZYHOOD, JAZZY TIME and JAZZY SHAPES. Two more books will be coming soon. JAZZY EXPLORES THE LIBRARY AND JAZZY EXPLORES SMITHFIELD.
