Meet the team

Aileen Latcham

CEO. Editor-In-Chief.

Aileen has a BS in Radio-TV-Film from the University of Texas at Austin. After working in commercial editing in Los Angeles for a few years and writing after hours, Aileen decided to leave the industry to dedicate more time to learning the craft. She went on to earn her MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University. Seeing the growing opportunities in niche publishing, she founded Ink Monster in 2013. Since then, she’s hit the USA Today Best-Selling list twice, and has moved nearly four hundred thousand books in her Alpha Girl series.
