Thank you for visiting! My name is Veronica and I am a writer and artist (illustration and hand lettering). I studied screenwriting at Biola University, and in 2005 graduated from their Torrey Honors Institute. This was an Oxford style Great Books program that had a profound influence on me.

I’m passionate about a classical, well-rounded education for everyone, and I believe that it’s never too early to start. My mother often says that books are not a luxury, they are a necessity. I want to foster an early love of reading because I believe reading as much as possible makes us better people.

I specifically want to make the concepts of the Great Books accessible to young readers, and have a few passion projects aimed at doing just that:

  1. Fiction series: young adult novels in which the influential thinkers of the past make a physical comeback to address the problems of a dystopian society.
  2. Literophile project: hand-lettered bookmarks with quotations from the Great Books and about reading.
  3. Crochet reading companions: crocheted animal plushies that introduce kids to literature’s most beloved/influential authors and characters.

My blog is a weekly publication in which I share my writing journey and offer means of overcoming creative resistance. There are always barriers to doing your best work, and I’m here to help you recognize those roadblocks and push through them as I push through them in my own projects.

I would love it if you shared some of your creative struggles with me. Drop me a line if you have any questions, comments, or just want to say hello!
