Who Is V. Monet

Formerly known as The Vixen, V. Monet is literary fiction author who pens passionate love stories and climatic contemporary dramas molded by her creative mind. From a young age, her love of storytelling has helped shaped new worlds with dynamic storylines. She is currently working on new romance fiction to release in the new year. Her pen name derives from her love of watercolor paintings by Claude Monet and the ‘V.’ is a tribute to her former pen name, The Vixen. For my literary works, She mostly writes genre fiction including romance/erotica, fantasy/sci-fi, paranormal, contemporary & historical dramas, and thrillers.

Her love of travel writing came about at a very young age. In 2017, she used her business sense and contacts to form a boutique travel agency and website called Love & Passports. Graduating with a Bachelor’s in Marketing and Cultural Studies, she used her creative talents in the advertising realm creating copy for brands such Global Brands Group,, and Bluefly.
