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 first installmen

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!

ALERT: This post may contain spoilers of The Bone Carver (The Night Weaver #2)That said: If you currently find yourself in a situation where you think you may have a stalker or you’re curious about stalkers in general for safety reasons … Screw the book. READ THIS POST. Your safety is far more important to me than a possible spoiler.
