Literature that lights your life


Monet is the president of South Carolina Writers’ Workshop Columbia III chapter workshop. He is the author of the novels, REHOBOTH (an adventure story of the future) the young adult thriller, CAPTIVE YOUTH. He is currently writing SELAH, the sequel to REHOBOTH.

Monet is retired from teaching Computer Electronics in Richland School District Two and now writes and helps writers full time. He lives with his wife, Kathy, in the small town of Elgin SC, near Columbia. His wife recently retired from a career in accounting. The two of them usually hike with their dog, Max, on a two-mile trail near their home each morning. Max is a toy poodle and Monet’s constant companion, unless Hannah, their granddaughter is visiting: then Max belongs to her.

Their cat Annabelle, more commonly known as “Mow Mow”, makes an appearance on the walking trail or in the home, whenever the notion strikes her. Both pets have been the inspiration for several stories.

Monet’s favorite activities, other than writing, include reading, hiking, feeding the birds that cluster to his back yard, singing in the church choir, and helping his wife and son Nicolas with the planting and harvesting of their vegetable garden. Monet can be contacted by email at Monet
