Summary

Monique Mulligan is an author, interviewer, and founder of the Stories on Stage programme in Perth. A former journalist, news editor and publisher, she combines part-time work at an arts centre with freelance editing and novel writing.

Biography

Born in Sydney and now living in Perth, Monique Mulligan is a former publisher, newspaper editor, journalist, children’s curriculum writer, and magazine.

In 2011, she created Write Note Reviews (now renamed moniquemulligan.com) to celebrate her love of reading. In 2012, through her part-time work at Koorliny Arts Centre, she founded the successful Stories on Stage program, which features authors talking or being interviewed in a theatre setting. From 2016-2018, she was a publisher and editorial director at Serenity Press.

In 2016, Monique shifted focus away from reviewing and into writing. In 2020 her first novel, Wherever You Go will be published via Pilyara Press. She already has two children’s picture books published, and her third is due for publication via Serenity Press in 2020. She is working on her third full-length contemporary novel.

Monique is also a keen amateur photographer who loves taking close-up shots of flowers, and a passionate but messy cook, who believes love is the best ingredient in food.
