DEATH LOVES VERONICA
Veronica Stich (also known as author Ronnie Stich and formally Campbell) was born in Los Angeles, CA. Her interest in history, music, films and writing began at an early age. Her history-related articles have been published in various newspapers, and she enjoys the study of alternative theories in historical events as opposed to the mainstream.
Although raised predominantly in San Antonio, TX, Veronica was also raised in various parts of England and California. These locations added 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 completed in 2007 entitled, The Assassination Race. After favorable reviews writing as Ronnie Stich, she released Curse of the Sacred Wolf only months later.
After the release of her first young adult novel Creepy Friends in April of 2014, Veronica spoke regularly at schools, conventions, and worked on small film projects.
As an experienced musician with several bands since the age of 15, Veronica currently works on album releases for her solo music project, Death Loves Veronica (more info). She has set writing aside.
Veronica proudly lives a culturally Jewish lifestyle, having come from a long line of Ashkenazi and Sephardic people. She is a direct relative of the Carvajal family- featured in several books about "Crypto-Jews" and depicted in the 1975 feature film directed by Arturo Ripstein, "The Holy Office."
