Gabriëlle Monego


I am a (cattle) grazier, living in Outback Australia with my amazing husband and awesome children.
Between teaching distance ed, working on the land and taking care of my family I write fantasy fiction.
I find that writing is a good way to get away from the drought we are suffering here in Outback Queensland.
I have published my first novel Australian Magic on Smashwords in May and the second book, Australian Earth and Fire has been out since July 13. The third book almost finished.
I am rather overwhelmed with the amazing responses I've gotten, thank you!
(And if anyone tells you book two is better I am not offended but pleased that they liked number one enough to get the second book !! I hope it's a case of; the more you read my stories the more it gets you in.)
Born in The Netherlands I'm widely travelled and I've enjoyed adventures in many countries as well as my journey through the beautiful and diverse Australia, which has been my home for many years now.

Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
The reason I have chosen to become an indie author is because I wanted to get my book out to as many people as possible for a reasonable price. In this day and age that means E-books and Smashwords seemed the best way to do that.
Where do you get your inspiration?
I get my inspiration from the country and history (myths and legends). Australia has so many different things to offer and the possibilities are endless.
