Writer Bio

Monica Valentinelli writes stories, games, essays, and comics in her Midwestern studio. She’s an artist, a former musician of 20+ years, and a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Creative Writing program who now writes and creates full-time. Her sanity is kept by her cats, her Make Art Not War writing circle, and her long-time partner. When she’s not obsessing about deadlines, she designs jewelry, dabbles in watercolors, and knits poorly with the Crafty Witches.
