About VeronicaThePajamaThief

Bio: Veronica Marie Lewis-Shaw Born in Lisboa, Portugal to parents of Portuguese/Russian descent, Veronica Marie and her partner of seven years and wife of three years, Christina Anne, call the Pacific Northwest home, where the couple are “still very much on honeymoon!” When not teaching and finishing her own studies for a Masters in Sociology, Veronica writes fiction, primarily noir - "I love dark!". She has been published online and in several anthologies. A few years ago, Veronica’s long fascination with noir fiction prompted her to try her own hand at writing fiction – “the last three years have been a roller coaster!”, where she honed her ‘writing chops’ on an unsuspecting public over at Flash Fiction Friday and Phil Ambler's (formerly Lily Childs’) Friday Prediction. Veronica has been published in Lily Childs' horror/urban fantasy anthology February Femmes Fatales, Pulp Metal Magazine, The Lost Children: A Charity Anthology, the horror anthology 100 Horrors from Cruentus Libri Press, and the inaugural issue of Literary Orphans magazine. She also appears in Katherine Tomlinson's anthology, NIGHTFALLS: Notes from the end of the world, Paul D. Brazill’s DRUNK ON THE MOON 2: A Roman Dalton Anthology and Near To The Knuckle's debut anthology - Gloves Off. Veronica counts among her mentors - Carole A Parker, Lily Childs, Paul D Brazill, Vicki Abelson, Richard Godwin and Joyce Juzwik. Lily's The Feardom and Vicki Abelson's Women Who Write Facebook writing group have both been a tremendous source of support and inspiration for Veronica, who is currently ‘polishing’ her first novel – a memoir – and working on the second draft of a second novel, as well as publishing a collection of her flash fiction and short stories. Veronica’s writings can also be found at and
