I met the lovely Monique Happy on Twitter, and am so very proud and honored to have her appearing as a guest on the upcoming show!
I am a native Californian and have lived in Southern California for most of my life. When I was five, my parents took me out of school to debark upon a three-year journey around the world on our 40’ Newporter, the Caprice. Out of sight of land for days at a time, and rarely provided the opportunity to play with children my own age, I turned to books for entertainment and solace. My dad introduced me to J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and the Trilogy, and John D. MacDonald’s Travis McGee series; I then moved on to “brown bagging it” – rowing over to neighboring yachts with a shopping bag full of books to trade. And so began my life-long love of the written word.
I also love to write, primarily short stories and flash fiction. Sometimes my ideas come from dreams, sometimes I get bits and pieces of them while I’m falling asleep. I love to people-watch and make up stories about who they are, where they are going, who they love and who they hate. I have some short stories and flash fiction published on online websites, and am currently working on several more stories and a fantasy novel.
In 2011, I started my own editing company: Monique Happy Editorial Services. I have extensive experience in editing fiction manuscripts, as well as legal papers and documents, having been a legal secretary for almost thirty years.
