About me

I write flash fiction and (longer) short stories. My work has been broadcast on East Leeds FM and appeared in Salomé, Firewords, The Cabinet of Heed, Riggwelter, Ellipsis, Spelk, Dear Damsels and other places.

I was shortlisted for the TSS Flash Fiction 400 competition, Spring 2018.


“I have always been impressed by Monica’s perceptive and sensitively-drawn short fiction. I have no doubts either about the quality of her writing or about her commitment.” – Peter Spafford, Director of Words, ELFM/Chapel FM

Some of the collections on the reading pile thanks to our fantastic Leeds Library Service, along with Sweet Home by Carys Bray, Ayiti by Roxanne Gay, Mothers by Chris Powell and Multitudes by Lucy Caldwell.
