• Author of TWELVE STEPS (YA), and THE PRINCESS AND THE FROGS (PB), loves to ask “What If?”–the magical question that makes almost anything possible. When not writing or reading, she likes to invent new cookie recipes and knit things from recycled plastic bags. She’s an incurable optimist who loves gray, drizzly days because that’s when rainbows come out to play. 

    Veronica is the Assistant Regional Advisor for the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), MD/DE/WV region, and the director of the MD/DE/VA/DC Read Local Challenge: https://mddewv.scbwi.org/read-local/.
