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

    Ouch. That sounds far too painful. I’ve got a tiny phobia about sharp objects. Even seeing people playing with something sharp on a TV show makes me cringe. I like to watch Being Human. I got shivers watching it last week when they were going to excoriate one of the vampires.

  2. I used the word at a time when the hardest part of my writing was coming up with the title for a story. I titled my commentary “Coming Up With a Good Title Is Like Excoriating My Own Flesh!”… it was almost that painful, I am not kidding! I would be up far into the night something, trying to come up with a title that ‘clicked’… that was relevant to the story.

    I’ve not yet seen Being Human… nothing against vampyres… one of my favorite characters is a vampyre… it may be that I don’t want to ‘color’ my character by reading or watching too much with vampyres… kind of weird, I know. :).
