Veronica Campbell (also know as author Ronnie Stich) was born in Los Angeles, CA and currently lives in Del Rio, Texas. Her interest in history, music, films and writing began at an early age. Her history-related articles have been published in various newspapers, but she enjoys the study of alternative theories in historical events as opposed to the mainstream.
Although raised predominantly in San Antonio, TX, Veronica lived in England for seven years as a child and teen. Extended stays in southern California and a year of high school in northern California also add to her cultural influence as a musician and writer.
Her first book was an experimental science fiction novel published in 2006 entitled, The Rise of the New Queen. After taking a six year break, she returned to writing in 2013 with a novel she had completed in 2007 entitled, The Assassination Race. After favorable reviews writing as Stich, she released Curse of the Sacred Wolf only months later.
Since the release of her first young adult novel Creepy Friends in April of 2014, Veronica spoke at schools, conventions, and worked on small film projects. She is interviewed regularly by various media outlets about her novels, film work, and her years of extensive music production.
She is currently working on an album releases for solo music project Death Loves Veronica.
