Monique Holden is a published writer who began writing in her early twenties. She had early success with getting published after she took a "how to write a romance" class. Monique has published magazine articles and devotionals, one of which was reprinted in Our Daily Bread. She then took a long hiatus from writing while she raised her family. Once she quit work, she immediately began writing again.
"It's been a pleasure to get back to writing. I never really stopped writing but most of the writing I did was technical writing. It's nice to be creating characters and telling their stories again."
