Her first novel, GIRL UNDER GLASS, was an Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award semi-finalist and a multi-category sci-fi bestseller. Of her dark fantasy novel, FAMINE, reviewers have said, “Jeez. Effing heck. I need more now!” and of her epic fantasy romance, THE SHADOW & THE SUN, they've written, "One of the best fantasies I've read in quite some time." Her stories are filled with intrigue, love, adventure, powerful heroines, and intelligent heroes. Monica has an English literature degree from the University of California, Los Angeles. She lives in Seattle, Washington, USA, with her husband, their daughter, a neurotic dog, and two crazy tomcats.
