Monica Hay earned her Master’s degree in Book Publishing at Portland State University and now works as an assistant for The Jennifer De Chiara Literary Agency. She writes fantasy for all ages and is currently revising a novel in preparation for the query trenches. When she’s not reading or writing, she goes on hikes in the beautiful PNW, buys too many books, and cuddles her fur babies. Her work always includes characters coping with mental illnesses, and incorporates heaping doses of hope. She now lives in Portland, Oregon.
