Monica Cafferky is an author, journalist and university lecturer. Her first job was on a martial arts magazine followed by a stint as a staff writer on Woman’s Own. Since going freelance, she’s spent the weekend with a coven of witches, interviewed many of her favourite authors, written about health, travel and consumer issues and had a weekly MBS page in The Daily Mirror, which ran for three years.
In 1997, Monica won a scholarship from The Reuters Foundation (now Thomson Reuters Foundation) to attend a training course with Reuters at Green College, Oxford. She was the only British journalist selected for this award, which was open to all media worldwide.
Monica is a Fellow of the Thomson Reuters Foundation and for five years was a visiting lecturer in journalism.
The Winter's Sleep is Monica’s debut novel, the inspiration came from growing up in a haunted house. Previously, she has co-authored three self-help books all published by Little Brown - Instant Intuition, Future Life Progression and Cosmic Energy. All three books have been translated into several languages including: Japanese, Norwegian, Czech, Portuguese, Bulgarian, Slovak and Estonian.
