Monique's passion for writing began as a young girl while penning stories in a journal. Now she looks forward to deepening her passion by creating many unique stories that do nothing less than intrigue her readers.

Monique holds a degree in journalism from Southern Methodist University in Dallas and is the author of a middle-grade book Once Upon a Time in Venice, historical fiction novel Across Great Divides, and historical fiction novel A Savage Kultur. 

Monique was born in Cape Town, South Africa, and her grandparents were European Jews who fled their home as Hitler rose to power. It’s their story that inspired her to write Across Great Divides, her first historical novel.

Historical fiction lets you escape to another time and place; and Monique likes to explore the past so that we can potentially better understand the future.

Monique resides in Dallas, Texas, with her husband and son. She also works as a freelance writer.

Freelance work:
In addition to her work as an author, Monique is also freelance writer and editor, known for helping corporations and organizations develop strategic, customer-centric web and print communications, marketing collateral, social media postings, and public relations materials. Monique has more than 20 years of experience in marketing communications, journalism, and public relations. She has helped companies in various industries, from IT to healthcare, develop their marketing strategies.
