Monique Mulligan is an author, publisher and the founder of the Stories on Stage programme in Perth, who has loved words from the moment she could use them. A former journalist and news editor, she combines part-time work at an arts centre with being editorial director of Serenity Press, which published Vasilisa the Wise and Other Tales of Brave Young Women by Kate Forsyth in 2017. She has had two picture books published and a number of short romances, but her passion is writing for adults; she’s currently working on her second novel, a coming-of-age story about a young girl who realises the lengths families will go to protect each other.
