Devon Monk spent her early childhood tucked behind couches or any other place with low light, "ruining her eyes" and reading. Her love of fairytales turned into a love of adventure, magic, future science, romance, mystery, humor, noir, and anything else she could get her hands on. She wrote her first story when she was six. When her teacher praised its quality, Devon was surprised. She looked it over again and all she thought was, "I can do better than this." And thus, a writer was born. While it is true she spent a few years as a columnist for an outdoors magazine, the president of a local writer's group, and even tried her hand at coordinating a couple writer retreats, she has also held an assortment of other jobs, including working for a child psychologist, a criminal lawyer, and painting holiday art on store front windows. Devon has one husband, two sons, and a dog named Mojo. She lives in Oregon and is surrounded by colorful and numerous family members who mostly live within dinner-calling distance of each other. When not writing, Devon is either knitting, remodeling the house-that-was-once-a-barn, or hosting a family celebration.
