We’re a boutique publisher of romance-focused series for and about fierce female heroines.
We love to read! All genres. We're book-a-day kind of readers who can never get enough. Our goal at Ink Monster is to release books that we're dying to read right along with you.
Meet The Team
Aileen Erin is half - Irish, half - Mexican, and 100% nerd—from Star Wars (prequels don’t count) to Star Trek (TNG FTW), she reads Quenya and some Sindarin, and has a severe fascination with the supernatural. Aileen has a BS in Radio-TV-Film from the University of Texas at Austin, and an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University. She lives with her family in Texas, and spends her days doing her favorite things: reading books, creating worlds, and kicking ass.
Cheri Patton is Okie born and Okie bred and a lover of all things books. With a degree in Secondary Education - English, books have been her life for a long time. She hopes to one day publish her own series, but in the meantime, she's loving being a part of the Ink Monster family.
Cheri lives in NE Oklahoma with her best friend (and husband) Jeff, their twin daughters, three dogs, and four cats in the big white house at the end of the road.
Mary Karlik recently moved from the beautiful Sangre de Cristo mountains of Northern New Mexico where she was a certified professional ski instructor to Texas. She loves visiting Scotland where she is currently studying Scottish Gaelic at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig in Skye Scotland. Mary also earned her MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University, has a B.S. degree from Texas A&M University, and is a Registered Nurse.
Whether in Scotland or Texas, Mary loves horses, dogs, cats, small town diners and out of the way pubs, country and traditional Celtic music, Gin, Single Malt Scotch, and an occasional beer.
