Monica Drake, author portrait by Bellen Drake.


Thank you for taking a look at my site, and an interest in my writing. I appreciate it! 

I have an MFA from the University of Arizona and teach at the Pacific Northwest College of Art. My debut Novel, Clown Girl, is published by the amazing indie press, Hawthorne Books, and has won an Eric Hoffer Award as well as an IPPY. It’s been translated into Italian, and recently optioned for film by the brilliant Kristen Wiig (SNL, Bridesmaids). 

My most recent novel, The Stud Book, is now out (Hogarth Books, April 2013) and doing great. I hope you might pick up a copy! 

Thanks for the support. 

Buy Clown Girl from Amazon.
