A native Phoenician, Monique Headley is used to the heat. She graduated from Arizona State University with a B.S. in Microbiology before deciding to forego grad school and viruses to dabble in Corporate America. Writing was always a goal, but it wasn't until her thirtieth birthday and a move to Chicago that she put aside her fears and gave it a shot. Now living in Denver, she's a member of two local RWA chapters and actively pursuing publication.
