Brenda Scott Royce

In addition to condensing other people’s novels, Brenda Scott Royce has written one of her own—Monkey Love, which Janet Evanovich hailed as “Delicious as a jelly doughnut!” Like Stephanie Plum, Holly Heckerling, the plucky heroine of Monkey Love, juggles romantic entanglements, career disasters and wacky relatives—but at least nobody shoots at her! (The most menacing character in Monkey Love is a mischievous monkey with a mad crush on Regis Philbin.) Not surprisingly, given her love of all things monkey, Brenda is director of publications for the Los Angeles Zoo. She has completed Monkey Star, the sequel to Monkey Love, and is contemplating more monkey adventures.
