Angela Monay was taught at an early age that a book can take a person to places that they have never been before.
She is a native of Long Beach, CA and is the youngest of her one brother and 5 sisters. Most of her childhood was spent in Oklahoma City, OK, where she attended Northwest Classen High School. After graduation, Ms. Monay went on to the HBCU, Langston University and majored in Elementary Education. During her senior year in college, she quit school, joined the United States Navy and traveled the world. Those lonely nights sitting in a duece and a half, on the beach, during fire and security watch ,changed her outlook on life. Just like when she was a kid, she had a book in her hand. That's when she moved away from the types of books that she had grown up reading. She soon discovered the likes of E. Lynn Harris, Nikki Turner and Eric Jerome Dickey.
Angela is a writer. She is a wife, a mother and a grandmother. She is a firm believer that a person can't write about what they don't know about. Most of all, she is a lover of love. She loves the idea of love. She loves nasty, drama-filled, fictional, twists and turns, and romantic love.
Inspired by her beloved and deceased mother, she used her love for love and began to write about love. Thus, Angela Monay was born
