Veronica is a writer and feminist from Chicago. (southside!) She divides her time between Twitter, Walking Dead, day parties, the Chicago Bulls, Dawson's Creek and reading damn good writing. Veronica's favorite writing quote is: Without a pen I feel naked but it's writing that is my exhibitionism. She will also work for chips & guac.
