About the author
With a background in education, theatre and drama Monica has written stage musicals and sold them all over the world. As a teacher Monica found it difficult to find quality musicals for students to perform and this motivated her into writing them herself. In collaboration with good friend Debbie Wright, the two have written all the music for their shows. With a keen interest in literacy and a gap in the market Monica could see that Children's chapter books for 7-11 year olds would be more appealing if they were interactive. Monica's books are written with this in mind. Children are encouraged to dress up as the characters and sing along to the songs. The music and lyrics are provided with the book. Monica's books are all about having fun while learning some life skills and extending vocabulary and reading skills. Monica is married to Curtis and has three adult children. They all appear as characters in her books.
