Author Fefi Monje Turns Friends True Story into Fascinating New Novel

Just because I was born poor doesn't mean I have to die poor.

“Just because I was born poor doesn’t mean I have to die poor,” said Joy Jones, the main character of new novel Palm Beach Mystery Lady.

Author Fefi Monje bases this character off of the real life experiences of one of her dear friends. Jones’ above motto merely hints at the lengths she is willing to go to reach the upper echelon of society.

“I have spent so much of my life traveling and meeting interesting people,” said Monje. “Certain people lead lives so fascinating and controversial it seems impossible not to share their story. Joy Jones is one of those people.”

Palm Beach Mystery Lady follows Jones from her battle with racial tensions in rural Mississippi all the way to her life as a model, prostitute and beyond. She struggles to keep a family together, carry on a career and even just live comfortably all in the name of social status.
