Monica M. Hoffman is a young adult science fiction and fantasy author represented by Laurie McLean and Tricia Skinner of Fuse Literary. She is a mentor and Communications Director with the Pitch Wars organization. She is from Salt Lake City, UT, but being a military brat (Air Force all the way, BABY!), she relocated to the east coast where she has remained for the last twenty years, and now lives in Charlotte, North Carolina with her husband and two Golden Doodles. Prior to college she was a band geek and drum major in her high school marching band. She even toured Europe for an entire summer playing the Bassoon with a regional orchestra. She graduated from Radford University (Go RU!!!!) with a degree in Criminal Justice, and received her Paralegal Certificate from George Mason University. She worked at Walt Disney World for several years, but finally got a job as a paralegal with a top international law firm. The day she felt like pulling her hair out due to the stress of her job, she realized she wasn’t happy. She needed to do what was always in the back of her mind. Write. From the day she could read, she buried herself in stories, dreaming of magical places beyond this world. Now she writes about them.
She dislikes getting up early, but a good cup of coffee can usually motivate her. She enjoys any movie/book (particularly fantasy and Sci-fi) that can make her cry, laugh, or gets her blood pumping from an adrenaline rush. She’s a Trekie, Dr. Who, and Star Wars fanatic, and a PC gamer when she’s not writing or reading.
