All About Veronica Scott

Best Selling Science Fiction/Paranormal author and USA Today Happily Ever After "Sci-Fi Encounters" columnist Veronica Scott grew up in a house with a library full of books as its heart, and when she ran out of things to read, she started writing her own stories. Married young to her high school sweetheart then widowed, Veronica has two grown daughters, one grandson and cats Keanu and Jake.

Veronica’s life has taken many twists and turns, but she always makes time to keep reading and writing. Everything is good source material for the next novel or the one after that anyway, right? She’s been through earthquakes, tornadoes and near death experiences, although nothing is as stressful as meeting a book deadline. Always more stories to tell, new adventures to experience—Veronica’s personal motto is, “Never boring.”

Proud recipient of the NASA Exceptional Service Medal but must hasten to add the honor was not for her romantic fiction!
