Monique Golda Nerman is an Italian/Swedish writer and artist.

She went to film school in Sweden, Italy and Los Angeles, worked in production on film sets and eventually moved to Asia and the Caribbean to work as an underwater camera operator and editor.

In New York she studied at the Art Students league; the feeling of breathing underwater is the inspiration of her art.

At the B’nai Jeshurun congregation she found a deep connection to the Ba’al Shem Tov and in Southern California Al-Anon inspired her to write the King Tommy book.

In a chapel in Cap Ferrat, South of France, she started writing the first draft.
