Born in Sydney and now living in Perth, Monique Mulligan has loved words from the moment she could use them. She’s told she used her words a lot as a child, earning the title of family chatterbox (and arguably still holding that crown). Once she could read, she devoured books with gusto – today, that enthusiasm is mirrored in her love of good food.

A  former newspaper editorjournalistchildren’s curriculum writer and magazine editor, Monique has had a varied career in writing. (Not to mention being a Family Day Care mother, a playgroup facilitator, a reception temp, administrative assistant, government administrative officer, marketing and media coordinator … all of which adds up to rich life experiences). In 2011, she set up a freelancing business from home, and created Write Note Reviews, a blog that celebrates her love of reading. In 2012, through her part-time work at Koorliny Arts Centre, she founded the successful Stories on Stage program, which features authors talking or being interviewed in a theatre setting.

Monique now has her sights set on becoming recognised as an author. Her short romance story, The Point of Love, has been published by Serenity Press as part of the Rocky Romance anthology. She is now working on a full-length contemporary novel, as well as another short story. Or two.

A mother of two grown sons and step-mother to two teenagers, Monique is also a keen amateur photographer who loves taking close up shots of flowers, and a passionate but messy cook, who believes the best ingredient in food is love. Her husband agrees.
