About the Author:

Monique Sorgen was born and raised in San Francisco, spending summers and winter holidays in Paris, with her mom's side of the family. Sorgen is half-French. She wrote her first chapter of a book in 5th Grade, based on the adventures, drama, and goings-on of her classmates at her French-American grade school. She sent her writings to Judy Blume, and in return became the proud recipient of a printed form letter and autographed picture, thanking her for being a fan.

Sorgen moved to Los Angeles, shortly before her 18th birthday, to attend UCLA's school of Theater, Film, and Television, where she studied directing for theater and film. Her directing pursuits lead her to writing screenplays, that she hoped to direct. Her screenplays lead to jobs writing for television, and later lead to jobs writing movies which have yet to be made. Her desire to share her stories without having to wait for a studio's "green light" lead her to writing novels. The use of the plural in the word "novels" is slightly exaggerated, since this is her first one. Or maybe it's premonitory, since she plans to write more.

Her debut novel, "How Long You Should Wait to Have Sex", is based on Sorgen's true mind-wonderings about how great it would be to get a do-over when a seemingly perfect guy disappears after sex.
