August’s Author of the month is MONIQUE MENSAH. Author & Blogger, Monique’s first literary work breaks on the scene poignant, urban, and AWESOME!

Simone, a shockingly beautiful teen, is on the downward spiral of destruction as she battles incest and self-hatred; she finds cutting to be the only way to relieve her pain. Jessica lives the upscale lifestyle of a refined society matron. She strives to be the perfect wife, but without her husband, Ross, she would be nothing more than the abused stripper he rescued 16 years ago. Ryan, a fiery thirty-something, is quickly slipping into depression and prescription drug-addiction as her boyfriend, Anthony, artfully dangles the empty promise of marriage. As the shattered lives of three very different women collide, they find that they have one thing in common: they are all in a desperate fight to hang on to love. But when love involves incest, self-mutilation, drug-addiction and murder, will they continue to fight or will they find the strength to escape before it’s too late? Experience their emotional journey through to the shocking end where these women will experience injury, imprisonment and even death while crafting new lives from the ashes of their ruination.

What made you become a writer?

I write because it is my God-given talent. I believe that everyone is blessed with a talent and writing is mine. Writing gives me a great sense of satisfaction and value. I am fulfilling my purpose. When I am writing I can be whomever my imagination guides me to be, go anywhere I desire, and I can express myself in ways I could never do otherwise. It is an outlet for emotions I may have been holding inside. I found my identity in writing. I am an author.

 


Where does your inspiration and/or passion come from to stay in the business of writing?

My drive for success and my dream of becoming a full-time writer motivates me to keep writing. I want to earn the privilege of earning a living from doing what I love. I have been a writer for as long as I can remember. Nothing else gives me more of a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment. I don’t think I will ever stop writing because it is what I was meant to do.

What is your latest book?

Who Is He To You is my debut novel.

Simone, Jessica, and Ryan are three very different women with one thing in common: They are all in a desperate fight to find self-worth, validation, and ultimately love through the men in their lives. But when love involves incest, self-mutilation, drug-addiction, depression, and murder, will they continue to fight or will they escape before it’s too late.

Who Is He To You is a dramatic novel filled with unique,multi-dimensional characters, edgy plots, shocking twists, and yes DRAMA! Be prepared to feel a myriad of sentiments as each chapter evokes emotion and sometimes audible reactions.
