Monica Marcinko

I  grew up in NJ, in a big family of 6  kids. With large holiday gatherings of extended family my parents always made Christmas magical. This book, and my adventure, wouldn't be where it is today if not for my sister Vera who in 1979 wrote a letter to Santa asking how to become an Elf.   

I have always enjoyed writing. In my early days I enjoyed writing, performing in plays, as well as dancing and acting. In 2007 I graduated from The Institute of Children's Literature.

I currently live in Carson City NV, and love the beautiful area of Lake Tahoe.

I enjoy spending my free time with my wonderful guy John C, and my kitty

Little E.

I'm guessing you recognize the guy in the background!
