Blog Bites with Monique Mcdonell


It’s a pleasure to introduce, Indie author Monique. I remember meeting her my first conference and she saw that I was a little lost and invited me to her table. ❤

 I write: chicklit and contemporary romance

 I’m from: Sydney

 Three words to describe me: loyal, friendly, enthusiastic

At home I cook:  Everything – I love cooking and baking.

My worst habit is: Gosh, how can I pick one? I’m going with the fact I’m an over-sharer…ask a question and usually you get more information than you bargained for.

It’s a bit daggy but I love: I’m a die hard Kylie Minogue fan from back in the ‘80s.

Saving for: always saving for another holiday.

I procrastinate by: Let me count the ways – social media, reading, TV, talking to friends…the list goes

Three things people might not know about me are: That’s hard (see my worst habit above) – I’m allergic to chilli, I can’t sing a note but am so good at lip-synching no one can tell, I’m always freezing cold.

Favourite author: I have a few but in my my genre I love Meg Cabot.

Current reading: I’m not reading anything this week but looking forward to getting lots of new books at the RWA Conference next week.

Plotter or panster: I’m a combo – I pants the first 1/3 and then I plot

I would most like to meet: The late Nora Ephron

When I was young I wanted to be: A writer or a trapeze artist.

Why I write: Latest project: I’m editing my fourth novel Building Attraction right, a fun contemporary romance.


Thanks for sharing, Mon.
