About Minnie Lahongrais

A native of New York City's "El Barrio", Minnie Lahongrais is the mother of one daughter and the grandmother of a young boy. A litigation secretary for an international law firm by day, she has always been an avid reader. As a child, she would sneak books to read under her covers at bedtime by the light of a penlight her father secretly gave her. This small gift gave way to a vivid imagination coupled with a seemingly unquenchable curiosity and thirst for knowledge. So busy was her imagination that when her father sold a car to a stranger, her family began to call her "Perry Mason". She was mortified by him for selling a car to a stranger without a broker and questioned why her father would put the family at risk of imminent danger when he invited the man up to the house for some coffee and to sign the paperwork. She was convinced they would all be victims of some horrible crime committed by this unknown man. This event planted the desire in her to become a forensic scientist ala CSI but after a medical emergency, she decided she wanted to write fantasy stories and thriller/mysteries instead. She currently resides in The Bronx in New York City and has two works in progress. One is a series featuring a breed of creatures with vampire-like qualities, and the other a murder/mystery.
