About Us

We’re a boutique publisher of romance-focused series for and about fierce female heroines.

The Ink Monster authors work together as a team. Each writer has a built-in support system to help brainstorm every step of the way – from worldbuilding to make sure that the final draft is as amazing as it can be.

We love to read! All genres. We’re the book-a-day kind of readers, who can never get enough. Our goal at Ink Monster is to release books that we’re dying to read.

We absolutely love hearing from our readers! We’re always blogging and posting on social media. Reach out to us at any time whether you have suggestions on a series, drew some awesome fanart for one of our books, or just want to say hello. We also love giving away series-themed prizes to our readers. (Yay, free stuff!) So don’t miss out-follow us!

Our Team


Aileen Latcham - CEO.

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.
