A debut author with New Concepts Publishing, Monica Burns was twelve when she became hooked on romance. First Barbara Cartland, then Kathleen Woodiwiss followed by Amanda Quick and Sabrina Jeffries fostered her love of historical romance. She penned her first short romance story at the age of nine when she selected the pseudonym she uses today. Two and a half years ago, she seriously committed herself to writing with a goal of publication. Since then, she’s penned five novels and two novellas. Industry insiders have called her writing, sensual, robust and bursting with sexual tension. Monica invites her readers to visit her website, where she hosts contests, offers a wealth of information and has a chat room for readers to discuss her books. She loves getting email from readers, and responds personally to each email she receives.
