Her long fascination with noir fiction prompted Veronica to try her own hand at writing fiction several years ago. She has been published in Pulp Metal Magazine, The Lost Children: A Charity Anthology, the horror anthology 100 Horrors, from Cruentus Libri Press, Nightfalls: an End of the World anthology, Drunk On The Moon 2: A Roman Dalton anthology and Gloves Off: Near To the Knuckle's debut anthology. Veronica has also appeared in the inaugural issue of Literary Orphans magazine and her horror/urban fantasy short story SOUL TAKER was recently chosen for inclusion in Lily Childs' february femmes fatales, an urban fantasy/horror anthology. Veronica counts among her mentors - Carole A Parker, Lily Childs, Paul D Brazill, Richard Godwin, Joyce Juzwik and Vicki Abelson. She is currently working on the third draft of her first novel – a memoir – as well the second draft of her first fiction novel, a fantasy novel and the publication of a collection of her flash fiction and short stories. 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. Veronica’s writings can be found at and, and

    Lustratory doesn’t sound like a purifying type of word at all. It’s far too erotic looking and sounding. Why is that your word?

    You’ve inspired me to keep the One Word Blog Day going. I’m going to make a page up for it today, with the rules a bit revamped and a fresh link back. The old, original link is 404. That’s how I ended up posting about it yesterday. I have been gradually checking my link rot. I have over 100 still, but not a surprise to have things to fix in an old blog.

    Anyway, thanks for reading and commenting. Mostly thanks for that erotic sounding word, right on Valentine’s Day itself. 🙂

    • You are very welcome… and thank you for the inspiration!

      Lustratory is a delicious sounding word, isn’t it? And, I came across it quite by accident. I had my thesaurus open, looking for something else and while flipping through the ‘l’s’, lustratory popped up! The word sounded perfect for OWBD!

      Yes… it is a perfect word for Valentine’s Day, is it not! 🙂

      I am so glad you are going to keep it going. I was visiting a friend’s page – Sue Harding – and saw the link to OWBD. It sounded very intriguing and well… here I am! Lol!

    PS- Congratulations on finishing NoNoWriMo. I’ve never managed to do that and I admire people who have gotten there.

    • Thank you! THE STORY OF A GIRL is in second draft write now. I hope to have enough of it done that I can take a break and participate in this year’s NaNoWriMo as well. I had an amazing time!

      Thank you so much for visiting my blog. 🙂
