About Me

Author of Young Adult books

After decades of working with incarcerated youth and raising three creative kids as a single parent, Mona is fulfilling her passions of writing and traveling. When not doing either of those, she’s reading, watching K-dramas, or tending her succulent gardens and two grand kitties.

She is a member of SCBWI, Macondo Writers, and a co-founder of #LatinxPitch, an annual Twitter pitch event.

Mona writes to amplify the voices of underrepresented women.
