About Me

My name is Sonia Brock

I was born in Chatham, Ontario, Canada in 1937. My mother, an American, was a housewife. My father would soon be going off for his 2nd war (WWII) as a bombing and gunnery instructor. He was in the R.A.F. in WWI, joining up when he was 15 years old.

I lived in Chatham from my year of birth until 1957. Thereafter I lived for, 8 months in Atikameg, Alberta on a Cree Indian Reservation where my husband was teaching. We moved to Detroit, Michigan for a year (He was an American).

After that I lived in the Lower East Side of New York City for 13 years before moving back to Toronto, Ontario, Canada in 1972 where I currently reside.

I worked for 13 years for the Canadian Federal government, ending up my career there as a self-trained webmaster.

Currently, I am retired but I keep busy with private clients for websites and guest spots as the "Blues Mama" on Danny Marks' Bluz.fm on jazz.fm in Toronto. I have a popular Links site at http://www.soniabrock.ca and a cloth art doll site at The Story of my Dolls.

These autobiographical Podcasts are for family, friends and perfect strangers, and they are turning gradually into a book.
