At the top of her website, Monica Carter Tagore has this tagline:
Story + Message = Life
Ghostwriter. Storyteller. Speaker. Novelist.
RootSky Books. She has been a professional writer for 15 years and has owned a writing business for 10. She is an award-winning writer and author. Tagore self-published her first novel in 2002, before landing a book deal a few years later. She has authored or ghostwritten more than 30 books and has spoken at workplace, college, and conference events.
Multitalented, Tagore writes both inspirational fiction and nonfiction. Her last novel was Scandalous Truth, published in 2009 by Urban Christian/Kensington and released in ebook format last summer. It is the story of a woman whose idyllic life is shattered when her husband runs for office and a secret she has buried deep in the past comes out and threatens all she has worked so hard to build. Can her marriage survive?
Tagore's other novels include Sacrifice The One and As If Nothing Happened.
What opportunities do your relationships hold to change your work life, your community, and even the world? Tagore's forthcoming nonfiction book is Connect and Conquer: Grow Your Business, Organization, and Career Through Online and Offline Relationships. Connect and Conquer is aimed at small business owners, freelancers, independent contractors, salespeople, and anyone who wants to make their connections matter. It contains helpful information and ideas that will enable readers to see their relationships differently and then find a way to have more meaningful interactions. It shares practical tools, tips, and strategies to help you tap into your relationships and access new opportunities, while providing value and meaning to those around you. This title is scheduled for a March 2013 release.
Tagore says, "Whether it’s fiction or nonfiction, I love to write about relationships in a way that challenges and adds to the life of the reader."
Tagore also hosts a writer's blog that deals with the business of writing. It's a resource that provides information and inspiration to help writers manage the business side of their careers.
