Monique Daoust

As soon as I learned to read, I read, and never stopped. As a lifelong reader of mystery, suspense, and thrillers, I bifurcated at some point into romance because of my infatuation with vampires. I’m a very eclectic reader – I will read a M/M romance, a technothriller, a historical romance, a biography, an erotic romance or an inspirational one with the same enthusiasm – but what makes me chose a book varies little, regardless of the genre: originality, creativity, solid plotting, complex and charismatic characters, wit, and most of all great writing skills and spellbinding storytelling. I have a Master's Degree in Linguistics, and I'm fluent in French and English, as well as basic knowledge of a few other languages. I became a proofreader and sometime copy-editor because I know I have the skills to contribute, even ever so slightly, to this wonderful world of books, be it only to ensure that those tiny annoying details – such as a heroine’s eye color changing midway, and so on – do not happen. Yes, accuracy is crucial to me, but so is being thoroughly entertained.
