D. E. Monnier is an Australian poet, novelist and screenwriter.

Her writing has been described as in the style of l’ecriture feminine. Her confessional, stream of consciousness narrative is influenced by mythology, occult imagery and the natural world.

Her “raw and sensual lyric” speaks of a deeper desire rooted in reclamation of our wild, instinctive and intuitive selves. Indeed, The Little Black Book of Verse” has been described as a “hunger for and celebration of deep connection to the rhythms of the natural world.”
