Veronica McDonald is a published fiction writer and poet, and an artist. She graduated from American University in Washington D.C. with an M.A. Degree in Literature, has published a chapbook of fiction and poetry, and is currently working on a novel while simultaneously trying her hand at a children’s book for military families.

Veronica’s writing tends to fall into the “dark” category. In her work, she likes to play with magical realism, isolated settings, childhood memories, and mixing the innocent with the monstrous.

Veronica became a born-again Christian in July 2016, and because of that event she is even more fascinated by good and evil, love and fear, life and death, and the way God and the Gospel can shine out of secular literature, movies, and everyday life. All of this is most likely reflected somewhere in her writing.

She currently lives in Southern California with her husband and two children.
