Monique DeVere grew up on a plantation on the beautiful island of Barbados, where her childhood was all about exploring and letting her imagination run wild. She spent her teen years in the UK where she still lives with her amazing hero husband, four beautiful children, and two incredible grandkids.

Monique wrote her first novel at age fifteen but had her heart set on becoming a doctor until she discovered that raising her kids was far more desirable. Since writing had always been her favourite pastime, she naturally turned to writing as her preferred job and has had short stories published and read on radio.

I'm so sorry, I didn't see your question until a moment ago. I know I promised more of Lily & Justin long ago, but truthfully, from some of the reviews for "More Than Friends", I didn't think anyone wanted the next book so I shelved it. BUT, if you're still interested in reading "Lily & Justin Are Getting Married", I shall get cracking on it just as soon as I finish a couple of the projects I have pending. Thank you so much for your interest. You made my day!!! :) (less)

One that makes me laugh. How do I deal with writer's block? I don't. First I don't think writers are ever really "blocked". I do think we get burned out. What do I do when I feel this way? I take a week or so out and spend it with the Lord. I listen to some of my favourite Leaders, read the Bible and just spend time talking with the Lord.

Sounds crazy?

I'm sure it does to a lot of people. But I find it revives me when I pull my focus back to what is really important in my world. After a while I find my imagination bursting with ideas and my motivation anxious to get writing again.(less)

Pull Up a Chair with Mon ~ What Do You Do When Your Characters Refuse to Comply? #AmWriting #WriteTip #Romance #Writers #AHAgrp

 


What Do You Do When Your Characters Refuse to Comply? 

Recently, after coming up with a great idea for a Harlequin Desire, I eagerly planned the story then sat down to write. What should have been an easy task of translating my plan for the story onto paper turned out to be one of the hardest books I've ever attempted. I spent a month fighting with my characters to make them follow my visi

“Then what’s this?” She raised her glass of expensive wine, used it to indicate their plush surroundings.
His gaze followed her indication around the dim-lit, upmarket Italian restaurant. “Dinner in comfort.”
“With a side order of persuasion?”
“More like an offer I’m hoping you can’t refuse.”
