Sonni Cooper: Biography Author, artist, actor, anthropologist, and administrator--and that's just the "A"s! Sonni has always been known as a Renaissance woman, possessing many talents.

She is a published author, having begun at age nine, writing scripts for New York City's radio station, WNYC. One of her science fiction novels, Black Fire (Simon and Schuster) was on the bestseller list and was chosen the best Star Trek novel published in the first 25 years of Star Trek. She was a consultant-writer for the Star Trek films. She has published two romance novels, "Forbidden Love" and "Love Trap", for Proctor and Gamble's "As the World Turns".

She has three novels appearing this year as print and e-books. "Riding the Rainbow", a serious literary novel about a Pueblo youth in crisis, describes his coming of age and elucidates the contemporary Pueblo culture. "Ankh", is a romance/fantasy novel that brings ancient gods of Egypt into the modern world. "Xenovation", science fiction, explores the consequences of creating a human/alien hybrid who is a god-head on the alien planet.

Sonni graduated from The Cooper Union Art School, NYC, with a major in sculpture, has a BFA from the University of Colorado (painting), and graduate school at the University of Illinois (painting). She also attended Adams State University, Alamosa, Colorado (graduate studies) with a major in Anthropology, specializing in the culture of the American Indian.

Her paintings have been shown in major galleries in New York City, Santa Fe, Taos, Austin, Scottsdale, Sedona, Los Angeles, and as well as in numerous juried shows in both the U.S. and Canada. Her work is represented in museums in the United States and Asia as well as in many private collections. She is currently working in acrylics, and her recent subject matter concentrates on southwest themes including the American Indian, animals, and landscapes.

As owner and President of Creative Enterprises she designed and produced multimedia projects, including the animation, illustrations, and documentation accompanying the computer programs. As a publicist for Star Trek's William Shatner, she designed, produced, and distributed merchandising items, and was designer and editor of publications which were distributed world-wide. Sonni has performed in plays, films and commercials.

She is a member of Screen Actor's Guild, American Indian Science and Engineering Society, Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, and Mensa.
