Get to know Monica...
Birthday? An odd time of year with most unpredictable and inconsistent weather.
When did you start writing? In first grade. I certainly couldn't spell "survive" or "poisonous", but I had some truly epic responses (with accompanying illustrations) to those English class writing prompts.
When and what and where did you first get published? This is my first paid publication.
What themes do you like to write about? Points of convergence and confluence, challenging boundaries, and blurred realities.
What books and/or poems have most resonated with you as an author? Why? How do these stories and their characters find expression in your work? Anything written by Ray Bradbury, Peter V. Brett, Monica Byrne, China Miéville, Philip Pullman, and Tamora Pierce makes me want to write. To me, reading their prose is like jumping into a swimming pool of imagination filled with glorious words and reveling in how wonderful it feels.
