Montiese McKenzie is a lifelong Philadelphia girl, writer, who somehow stumbled into accounting. As a kid if she wasn't writing stories exploring the human condition, she was stealing her mother's matches to light things on fire. With a B.A. in both History and Sociology from Bloomsburg University, Montiese combined her love of the human condition, time periods, and writing to survive five years in the boondocks.
She wrote her first complete story at eight years old, a fourth grade class assignment, and spent the next 31 years immersed in the lives of a variety of characters from FBI agents to alien kids on space stations. No adventure is too big, no interaction is too small for her to write it down.
A cat mom, a sock collector, and lover of Merchant-Ivory films with too much dialogue, Montiese is about to enter her fourth decade riding high on naps and snickerdoodle cookies.
