Monica Hay earned her Master’s degree in Book Publishing at Portland State University and now works at ABRAMS Books as a Marketing Associate. She writes young adult fantasy and is currently rewriting a novel. She hopes to write fantasy similar to Kristen Ciccarelli, Sarah J Maas, and Mindee Arnett, whose works have heavily influenced her. When she’s not reading or writing, she explores New York, buys too many books for her Brooklyn apartment to hold, and drinks a lot of coffee. She loves all types of books, but has a special place in her heart for fantasy and incredible prose.
