War is a natural phenomenon.
It’s Nature’s way of dealing with overpopulation. It’s basically a Cull. War, earthquakes, floods, pestilence are her reactions to the overcrowding of this planet.
I start Wars. I initiate the Culls.
If you really looked at world history, you’d be able to identify my hand in most of the major conflicts in the past three thousand years. I instigate and magnify conflict. I set parties against each other. You humans are predisposed to kill each other anyway. I just make sure that it’s done on a gargantuan scale that leaves an imprint.
It’s time for a new major struggle: a World War. As with all things, it’s “think big and start small”. You don’t just wake up and start a world war. It takes a lot of preparation. A lot of networking. Diplomacy. And usually brutal murder.
I cultivate certain characters that have potential. They need to have the basics: the charisma to entice others to follow no matter what, and the insanity to cross over the boundaries of good sense, ethics, morals and basic humanity. Thankfully, there are more than enough candidates around. I just choose the one with the best credentials.
War is like fire. It cleanses.
Sometimes you humans are capable of tending the flame yourself.
Sometimes you need my personal brand of assistance.
It’s what I do. And I’m good at it.
I gather the tinder.
Strike the match.
Fan the flame.
…………….Then watch it burn.

About the Author
Monique Singleton writes compelling stories that mix fantasy with realistic psychological suspense and unique insights into the mind of the main characters.
Her style conveys a sense of irony and understatement that provides a counterpoint to the fantastic events of the story. She doesn't overwrite or linger on description. Her prose is unadorned, lean, supple, and muscular. It is not the usual feminine fiction. The story moves and gathers a great deal of power.
Monique’s characters practically leap off the page. The main character, especially, has a tremendous amount of personality that comes through marvelously well. She is sardonic, cynical, and chillingly frank, but she has real personality, and although she hates humans, there is something engaging about her. Despite her prickly personality, readers will identify with her. She is a person—well, she isn't human, or claims not to be, but she's still a person, for all that she changes in a super-fierce feline creature—who is treated unjustly and defies authority, telling the powers that be to go to hell, and anyone who does that can't be all bad.
Immortality is forced on her in the Primal series. She never asked for it and doesn’t want it. Now she must come to terms with what is basically an eternal life sentence.
For most of us, immortality would seem like a dream come true. Nothing could be further than the truth. Her Immortality was the ultimate nightmare. And that was even before she found out about the bloody price she has to pay for eternity.
To stay sane she must uncover the secret behind her immortality. Set against the background of world war three and four, she seeks not only clarity and a purpose in life but also a way that she can hang on to her fragile sanity.
The Primal series follows a number of story lines that interact to form a greater whole. 2017 will see the launch of at least four books in the Primal series. Primal Nature and a perma-free novella Warmonger form the first acts of the story in February, followed by Nature of the Beast in April and The Beast Inside planned for June. After that who knows. They story is not finished so there will be more to come.
As the daughter of a British soldier and his Dutch wife, Monique was born in an English military hospital in Germany. The family toured the world where she was exposed to many cultures and countries. Finally settling down in the Netherlands she pursued a career in Art and later in ICT.
About six years ago Monique started putting the scenes she had running around in her head, down to paper.
Scenes led to a story, the story to a book, and the first book to a series.
In addition to her writing, Monique still holds down a full-time job as a business consultant. She lives in a beautiful old farmhouse in the south of Holland with her two soppy monster dogs, some horses, and a cat.
The cat is the boss.
