Monique was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, where she currently resides with her husband and two cats.
Always the avid reader, she spent every available moment as a child devouring books and learning to read by the time she was three. She watched as many fantasy and science fiction films as her mother would allow, firmly establishing her love and passion for storytelling of the Otherworldly kind.
After a very successful professional dance career, spanning 25 years, she began writing seriously in 2009 when her dance career came to an end and her husband and greatest supporter urged her to finally make a start. Since then she’s never looked back.
The Sword Bearers tetralogy is the culmination of 32 years of joyous creation begun the day she saw Star Wars for the first time when she was eight. She realised, on that very magical day, that there are no limits to her imagination. The Sword Bearers tetralogy can be found on Amazon (as it is linked to a publisher and only available there).
"The Door" available on Smashwords, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble, among others, is the first of many short stories Monique has planned. She loves Science Fiction as much as she loves Fantasy, and writing in this genre comes just as naturally to her.
Monique is also a professional actress and playwright.
The world is dying and there's nothing anyone can do to stop it!
The arrogance of the human race has caused catastrophic events throughout our history too many times to count, and now again the disdain for humility (always seen as weakness) and the blatant disrespect for all life has resulted in an irreversible global disaster that cannot be averted.
Nothing short of a miracle can save us now!
