Damhnait Monaghan

A former teacher and lawyer, Damhnait* Monaghan grew up in Ontario and Newfoundland & Labrador. New Girl in Little Cove is her debut novel, inspired by the years she spent teaching in outport Newfoundland. Damhnait won the 2022 Rakuten Kobo Emerging Writer Prize in the Romance category for New Girl in Little Cove. The Globe and Mail calls it "a warm hug of a book" while Post Media says, "This charming fish out of water tale practically begs to make the leap from page to screen as a heart-warming movie." Damhnait lives in the south of England with her husband, kids and the family dog. (*pronounced Downith)
