Monica Knightley is the pen name for Monica Duddington. She writes adult fiction under Monica Knightley, and Young Adult under Monica Duddington.
Monica is a former teacher who began creating compelling characters and stories at the age of three, when she had a plethora of imaginary friends, all with complete backstories. Today any characters that come knocking on the door of her imagination find themselves in one of her young adult novels, paranormal romances, or mysteries.
When not fueling her reading addiction or writing her next book, Monica loves to travel with her husband—especially to England. A bit of England seems to make its way into most of her books. Must haves include a perfectly steeped cup of tea, and a good, bold red wine. She lives in Portland, Oregon where the frequent rainy weather is perfect for curling up with a good book and a cup of tea.
