c'est moi

Adara Trosclair (adaratrosclair) is the name of a fantasy character in an alternate universe that I created. I hope to breathe life into her by sharing her with the rest of the world in her first book , “Prelude to Morning”, a YA fantasy novel that takes place in a dystopian society.

As of this year, “Prelude to Morning” will be a part of a larger work: the Bloodcraft Trilogy. You can learn more here.

I’m the author of two published novels, “Moonstruck: Book One of Waking Dream Series” and “Forbidden: Book One of the Gabriel Lennox Series”. I plan on writing even more books! I’m also the mother of three sons and a (sometimes grumpy) wife to a darling man. Lol. 🙂

Former technophobe: (computers and cell phones have mysteriously fallen ill or died in my presence).

2019 Bio Update: Monique L. Desir was born and raised in Florida. She hasn’t quite figured out how to escape the Sunshine State and is trapped within its swampy alligator-infested clutches with her husband and three sons. The daughter of West Indian parents (Haitian father, Jamaican mother), she loves learning about different cultures, languages and people. She binge-watches forensic television shows and Soca dances until she glows, so she can have seconds on cake. Her stories have appeared in FIYAH Literary Magazine, Nightlight Podcast, Colorism Healing anthology, and her ahistorical speculative fiction short story Bondye Bon will be published and translated in French as a part of Rivière Blanche’s 2019 Dimension Uchronie short story anthology. Find her on Twitter @moniquedesir or moniquedesirauthor.com.

  1. I just wanted to let you know that I administer a small writer’s group for Horror writers, but we also accept dark fantasy writers who would be interested… check us out at https://grmhwapa.wordpress.com/ … we submit work regularly (3 submissions per year, read 3 per year), and our mission is to help each other write better and share publishing experience…If we fit your needs just follow the instructions to join!

    1. That sounds fabulous! I will look into it. I’m an elementary school teacher and the workload is often quite heavy and all-consuming. But, I write because it pleases me. So, this group sounds like something that could be quite beneficial. 🙂 Thank you for sharing it with me. I will look into it.
