Monica Duncan is a writer of literary fiction, musician, wife, and mother. Originally from Michigan, she finds herself continually drawn to the hidden richness of the places she comes from. Now living in Newburyport, Massachusetts, she is still at home, by the water. Monica holds music degrees from Michigan State and Indiana University, and is active as a freelance musician and teacher in the Greater Boston area. She’s pretty sure she’ll always be in love with the soundtrack from O Brother, Where Art Thou?, and has discovered that her favorite skill as a writer she learned from her life in music: Be a good listener.
