Born and raised in Italy, Monica moved to Canada with a degree in ancient Greek and Latin though without speaking a word of English.
She learned English by watching the Muppet Show and attending evening classes with other non-English speakers. To this day she marvels at how any of them learned English.
She now holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from the University of British Columbia and is proud to be the author of many books. Monica is a feminist like Miss Piggy. Kermit the Frog is still her prince and Cookie Monster her hero.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
