Monica Wood was born in Maine to a devout Irish Catholic family of paper mill workers. She grew up with the tradition of storytelling . She also read quite alot as a child and soon developed a love for books. Her sister and her were the first generation in her family to attend college so she thinks of her background as a literary one. Her fiction titles carry the theme of family throughout. Her older brother and sister are almost a generation older than her and her two sisters. Her parents died young and one of her sisters is mentally disabled, which has kept the family close throughtout the years. She works to create characters who appear real despite their circumstances. She also creates an empathy with the reader so that they care about what happens to these characters.
