Monique Snyman’s mind is a confusing bedlam of glitter and death, where candy-coated gore is found in abundance and homicidal unicorns thrive. Sorting out the mess in her head is particularly irksome before she’s ingested a specific amount of coffee, which is equal to half the recommended intake of water for humans per day. When she’s not playing referee to her imaginary friends or trying to overdose on caffeine, she’s doing something with words—be it writing, reading, or fixing all the words.

Monique Snyman lives in Pretoria, South Africa, with her husband and an adorable Chihuahua. She’s the author of MUTI NATION, a horror novel set in South Africa, and the Bram Stoker Award® nominated novel, THE NIGHT WEAVER, which is the firs

Hi Talha!
Seeing as I started off as an author I understand what is needed of an editor. I try not to impose on the author's voice and style, but I do rework some texts where plot-holes are located. When I rework or correct, I tend to adapt to the author's writing, mimicking their style, but I always make a note to tell them to rewrite the text in their own words (just in case). Adapting to one role or another isn't as difficult for me as it is for others, because I tend to keep both worlds apart (this is why I need an editor for my own work).
Have a great day!

Wrong Answers Only Interview: Lex H. Jones

I recently got my hands on Lex H. Jones, author of Nick & AbeThe Other Side of the Mirror, and The Old One and the Sea. Now, yes, it’s been a while since I’ve rolled up my sleeves and got to work on a fellow author, making them lie for a Wrong Answers Only Interview … *sigh* What can I say? Sometimes my hobbies need to take the backseat as I do all the writerly things. But I thought it was about time I treated you all a little something-something.


I have to warn...something-something.


Iand TheAbe, Theof Nickon Lex
