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

    That’s interesting Veronica, 🙂

    • Thank you, Leanne! I find it a very interesting word as well. 🙂

      I came across this word, and its adjective form, while working on a story for an ‘end-of-the-world’ anthology due out at the end of the year. The premise of my story is that zombies take over the world.

      • Leanne Cole says:

        I think my daughter would like that story, she loves horror stories. 🙂

      • My story is through the eyes of a 15 year old Portuguese girl, talking about their last night on Earth… no graphic horror in this piece; it’s all implied. I would be more than happy though, to send you a copy of the anthology when it comes out… I’m not sure how many writers are contributing, but it should be an interesting read, considering the theme.

      • Leanne Cole says:

        That would be wonderful. I asked her and she said she would like that. She does some writing herself, you could check out her blog
        Don’t feel obligated to do it.

      • I will make sure I do that then, when the anthology comes out.

        I just popped over and read ‘The Moon Is Alone In The Sky'”. It is a very evocative piece… I really like it!

      • Leanne Cole says:

        Thank you Veronica, that would be great.
        I think she is a great writer and definitely well ahead of her 17 years. she wants to be a writer. Thank you for taking a look.

    I wasn’t familiar with this word. Which is probably a good thing. Now, I’m in the mood for zombie flick and it’s past my bed time.
