“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you” – Dr. Maya Angelou

20171222_080237My name is Monique Gooch, and I make stuff up for a living. Let’s just get “WRITE” into shall we? You’re either here because you’ve read some of my work, heard about me somehow or you’re a friend/family member OR… you’re in my writer’s group, and want to know more about me. Regardless, how you found me… ya’ found me and I say… WELCOME!

I am the author of new adult and adult commercial and contemporary fiction. To put it simply, I write books that I would want to read. I currently have four short stories self-published online at Amazon. I have two manuscripts written, that are being edited, after that, I’ll pitch to an agent or decide to self-publish them. And lastly, I am the host for my own writer’s group in Hermitage, TN called, “Mastering Writing Workshop”. It is where I, along with other writers, help others critique their work to the best of our abilities. The group has been going strong for nearly three years. You can find us at meetup.com.

I have been writing since I was 10-years-old. I even asked Santa Claus for a typewriter, and guess what? I got one! And I’ve been writing ever since! It is here, you’ll be able to be added to my mailing list to keep up with new projects, and to be notified when new books will be released. And if you’re looking for a beta reader, don’t hesitate to contact me.

I previously served as an editor with Touch of Class Publishing Services.

Check out my interview with WVOL radio on The Rush Hour Show.

I currently serve as the Youth and Children’s Curriculum Editor at R.H. Boyd Publishing.

  1. Hi Monique! Just checked out your website. Noticed two of your books are Christmas themed like my book starts off. Will try to read some of your stuff once I catch up on my reading list. One of my other workshops does novel length works and editing/feeding back on 100,000 words is time consuming. Mastering Writers Workshop is a profound resource. I commend you, Madame Moderator!
