Monica Barrie

Biography

Who is Monica Barrie? What can I say? Romance writing has always created issues with names. When an author writes for one publisher and then a second, many times there are contractual obligations coming with the publication and the name, so romance writers tend to have several pseudonyms. I'm no different: My pen names Monica Barrie, Jenifer Dalton & Bonnie Faber:

In the real world, I am a geriatric social worker, wife, mother and recently grandmother. My real name is Bonnie Faber Wind, and I live in Chestnut Ridge, New York. My husband is writer David Wind, a multi-published author himself.

I opened a new website, and added this profile so I could share many of my books that have gone out of print, and to have a place to let my readers know about projects I am working on. The first four books I am releasing as eBooks are: 'Cry Mercy, Cry Love', which was originally released as a Silhouette Special Edition; 'Silken Threads', Another Silhouette; 'Lovegames', a special edition; and, Alana, a Historical Romance originally published by Dell.

Three other novels, co-written with my husband David, and originally published under the name Bonnie Faber, will also be released soon. These novels are suspense stories, with female protagonists. They were the precursor to what is currently considered Chick-Lit - almost romantic suspense but with the emphasis on suspense more so than romance. These novels will be found on both my website (www.monicabarrie.com) and my husband David's website (www.davidwind.com). The first book released is 'Shadows'.
