Writer-New Projects

As mentioned in the "About" section, Bridgette is very divers in her art, speaking and communication. This diversity translates to her writings. A perpetual documenter, she loves experiential writing. Bridgette focuses on working through difficulties, spending time researching, and putting processes into practice life and art, and writing about these things inspires her.

While there are many of her published works listed on the "Published Works" page, the list is not complete. Finding opportunities to write about her passions has led to multiple publication of both articles and books. With some luck and the right agent, she hopes to expand that list.

Publicity and marketing come naturally to a few. You rarely have the package of creativeness, business savvy, and marketing manager rolled into one person, but Bridgette has learned to intertwine all three in her process. Publicity is one are Bridgette does well. She enjoys the challenge of finding places to promote her work. For more information visit the "In The News" section of this website.

Bringing to Life the Spirit of the Deceased: A Sculptor's Journey
As a sculptor who has specialized in posthumous commissions, Bridgette Mongeon has helped many families work through grief and celebrate life. As one person said, "You develop a relationship with the deceased."

This book walks through four posthumous commissions and the life of an artist who tries to make sense of some of her "special abilities" that have nothing to do with art. Not satisfied with accepting what others might refer to as "paranormal," Bridgette finds the science behind the unusual occurrences.

 

"My idols are Dr. Suess, Jim Henson, and Shel Silverstein. I guess you could say I have a Silversuesshensonstein type of approach to my children's writings. Oh, and with a little bit of Mr. Rogers."
