Monique O’Connor James has a true love of storytelling and is an author who can spin a magnificent tale.
Her enthusiasm for beautiful writing naturally evolved into the desire to help readers discover new talent, and help writers realize their dreams. When Wendy “Lovetiggi” Nielson, and Amy Herzog added their creative genius and innovative ideas to the team, a company dedicated to making the publishing process fun and exciting was born.
Our company is growing as we strive to create a fun and safe atmosphere for writers and their creative works. Our goal is to always be available for our talented literary family, while helping them share their stories with the world. We are an indie publisher ran by indie authors and promoters.
Our motto is – “We believed we could, so we did” and we believe you can too!
Monique O’Connor James – Owner/Director/Senior Editor of BBP
Monique is the mother of two beautiful children and lives in a small community outside of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. On her eighth birthday, her mother bought her a journal and said “write whatever you want, just write.” And so, a love affair with words was born.
Her collection of novels and short stories is ever growing as writing is her first true love. Her desire to help other authors gain exposure and hone their craft grew as she navigated the publishing world alone. It is her hope that Bayou Brew Publishing will become a safe place for other writers to share their talents with the world. She believes that any dream is possible if you have the support of a great team.
