Monica Cable started her writing career early in life, penning her first short story "Nature's Finest" in 1981, at the age of 5. Discouraged by her small child's vocabulary, she felt the short story format was best suited for her but by grade three, brand new home computer at the ready, she felt fit to finally tackle her first novel about the always-interesting grade-school life of a white child in suburban America. Monica continued writing throughout her childhood in Cleveland and into her teens, what could mostly be considered prehistoric fanfiction starring herself and the New Kids on the Block. Eventually, through schooling and life experience, Monica made it to the important milestone of being paid for her word-smithing. She's written, edited and proofread for an Internet publishing and database company, a well-known Hollywood research firm as well as various individual clients. Her personal projects include screenplays, novels, fanfiction and co-authoring the most hilarious chick lit series you're not reading. She recently completed her first non-fiction book "If You Were an Alien, Would You Want to Live Here:an Alien Hypothesis” and is already at work on her next literary marvel. You can follow the progress of her adult Nancy Drew mystery “Those Sassy Bitched and the Clue to the Bloody Mary Remix” at www.NaNoWriMo.org. Monica is now living in Irvine, California with her husband (who is not a member of New Kids on the Block).
