Meet the Nightingales: Monica Tierney

As you may (or may not) know, my second book, Nightingales: CRASH!!! is set for publication next week.  This is a supernatural mystery series featuring five women of color who join forces to figure out what the hell is going on in their apartment building. Each lady is armed with a unique set of skills. Two of the women are black, and as such, will be featured here on TBGC.

Fans of my blog, Musings in the Dark, know the genesis of this project (*cough Ankh cough*), and thus also know that these women have been dreamcasted.  So if you will, allow me to introduce you to Monica.

Chrystee Pharris as Monica
Monica D. Tierney is a store manager, a law student, a gifted linguist, and a computer geek.  She's a proper church-going, choir-singing Southern belle, who is engaged to a Chinese-American auditor named Chris Kang (dreamcasted by the lovely Dan Southworth).  Monica speaks six languages and knows her way around high-tech firewalls and cyber-security systems.  She plans to be an IT attorney and marry Chris after she graduates from Emory University's law school.  Currently, she's in the process of trying to get a second summer job at either King & Spalding or Alston & Bird, the top two law firms in Atlanta.

You can learn more about Monica when the Nightingales blog (and book) is released.


  1. Wow ,Chris can speak 6 languages? I'm jealous of this beautiful young woman. I also congratulate her on her upcoming marriage and graduation. It seems that everything is going right nd falling into place for her.

    PS.I notice that both of their names are basically Chris .I wonder is Chystee's fiance is shortened foe Christopher or Christian. Either way, I'm rooting for the both of them

  2. Monica is a character in the book that speaks 6 languages. Chrystee Pharris is the actress I chose to dreamcast her. If this were a TV show, Chrystee Pharris is who I'd want to play the role of Monica.

  3. Oops... I did it again.

    Wow! If I forgot that these were fictional characters in a book,just imagine what another potential reader may think about it because it's so convincing. I actually thought that these we're people you actually knew. The way the story comes off, it will be a goody to read. It would probably be a great TV show as well.
