Margarita Montimore's picture

Margarita Montimore

After receiving a BFA in Creative Writing from Emerson College, Margarita Montimore worked for over a decade in publishing and social media before deciding to focus on the writing dream full-time. She lives in New Jersey with her husband and dog.

Margarita writes upmarket/literary fiction that tends to be left of center and flirt with multiple genres. She loves all things dark, strange, and surreal, but is also optimistic—verging on quixotic—and a pop culture geek, so her work tends to incorporate all those elements to varying degrees.

Genres: Science Fiction
   Asleep from Day (2018)
   The Rearranged Life of Oona Lockhart (2020)

Margarita Montimore recommends
The White Coat Diaries (2020)
Madi Sinha
"An engrossing story featuring an endearing protagonist. Madi Sinha offers a compelling glimpse into the world of medicine and desi culture through Norah Kapadia, a witty, fierce, memorable character. As Norah navigates her personal and professional struggles, she may falter, but she's never defeated. Readers will delight in her self-discovery and development—both as a doctor and an individual."
My Brilliant Life (2021)
Ae-ran Kim
"This novel snuck up on me and captured my heart."
The Darkest Flower (2021)
(Allison Barton, book 1)
Kristin Wright
"Impressive and intoxicating. The women inhabiting this story are bold, clever, complex, and deliciously thorny—quick to show you what they’re capable of if you dare underestimate them. This book is a dark delight, and Kristin Wright is an author I’ll be closely watching."
