Monique was born in Cape Town, South Africa, and her grandparents were European Jews who fled their home as Hitler rose to power. It's their story that inspired her to write Across Great Divides, her debut, historical fiction novel.

Monique holds a degree in journalism from Southern Methodist University in Dallas and is also the author of a children's book Once Upon a Time in Venice. In her free time, she loves to travel, play tennis, pursue her passion for writing, and read historical fiction. In 2008, she was chosen by the American Jewish Committee's ACCESS program to travel to Berlin, Germany, on the 70th anniversary of Kristallnacht, to explore German and Israeli relations along with 20 other Jewish professionals from across the U.S.

Once Upon a Time in Venice (Children's Books)
1 chapters   —   updated Jul 05, 2009 12:39PM
Description: Grandpa Leo is saddened by some devastating news and keeps it a secret from his only grandson, Samuelle. As Samuelle’s legal guardian, Grandpa Leo decides Venice, Italy would be the perfect place for a trip—and much more. Not only is Venice charming, but also Grandpa Leo’s roots stem back to this magical place. Once in Venice, they share many adventures, and Grandpa Leo stumbles upon someone special from his past. Meanwhile, Grandpa Leo struggles with when to break the news to Samuelle, but with Samuelle’s growing fondness for Venice and his new relatives and friends, the challenge may be a little easier to face. Eventually, Venice becomes a special place in their hearts, forever.
