About Tonya Duncan Ellis
Tonya Duncan Ellis is author of the Amazon bestselling, Readers' Favorite "Five Star" rated, Sophie Washington children's book series, geared toward readers ages 8 to 12, and is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), the Authors Guild, and the Brown Bookshelf's Highlights Foundation-sponsored, Amplify Black Stories storyteller cohort. She has received awards for literary excellence, worked as a journalist and a freelance magazine writer, and is a graduate of Centre College of Kentucky and Washington University in St. Louis.
Tonya loves to travel and has visited 49 American states, 20 countries, and three continents, but some of her best journeys have been between the pages of a novel. As a girl she could always be found with a book in her hand, and reading is still one of her favorite hobbies. When she's not reading or writing, the author likes to ride her bike, swim, and spend time with her husband and three children. She lives in Houston, TX.
The Sophie Washington series stars a sweet and sassy African American preteen from Houston, TX and her diverse group of friends. Each funny and heartwarming story teaches lessons about friendship, responsibility, truthfulness, and perseverance.
Over 70,000 children have enjoyed the adventures of Sophie and friends. We hope you join them!
