I’ve often said that travellers so easily become writers. We see the world from so many different angles learn that different cultures have different priorities, different aspirations and different mindsets. Maybe that is one reason that Monique began writing?

Do read all of this blog as Monique is offering a free copy of her book, and I’ve sneakily put the link right at the end!


As the daughter of a British soldier and his Dutch wife, Monique was born in an English military hospital in Germany.  The family toured the world where she was exposed to many cultures and countries. Finally settling down in the Netherlands she pursued a career in Art and later in ICT.

In 2011 Monique started putting the scenes she had running around in her head, down to paper.  Scenes led to a story, the story to a book, and the first book to a series.

She lives in a beautiful old farmhouse in the south of Holland with her two massive sloppy dogs, some horses and a cat.

The cat is the boss.

War_Monger_4-Final (1)

Warmonger is a novella that sets the scene for the Primal series.
In the near future France is ruled by an ultra-right minded president. The country is in chaos, the chasm between rich and poor is ever increasing. Unwittingly a beautiful woman becomes the catalyst that starts not only a new French Revolution but also the Third World War.
But what is the role of the strange priest in all this? Who is he? Or more appropriately, what is he?

An intense story full of international intrigue, unexpected twists and a mind blowing finale.

Download your free copy of Warmonger and emerge yourself in the Primal series. You will not regret it.


I will be downloading this as soon as I have finished writing. And honestly I’m not doing this for a free book, it was just a lovely surprise!
