About Monica

Monica Cox is a women’s fiction author, freelance writer, and beta reader.

She began her career in public relations where she worked in Washington, D.C. then Atlanta on a variety of media campaigns for clients ranging in topics from healthcare to high school sports. After the birth of her first child in 2006, she began blogging. Initially writing about the challenges of transitioning from the corporate world to at-home motherhood. As her boys grew and life evolved, she documented the joys and pitfalls of on-ramping and flexible work arrangements. Through it all, she has also written fiction, completing two novel manuscripts and a number of short pieces.

When she’s not banging her fingers against the keyboard (or her head against the desk), she can be found with a book in hand while waiting for her kids at their various practices and activities.

Monica is a graduate of the Hussman School of Journalism and Media at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a proud member of the Women’s Fiction Writers Association. She currently lives in North Carolina with her husband and two boys they are raising to be unabashed Tar Heel fans and avid readers.
