Veronica is an Australian-born writer with a career spanning stage and screen, and a background in magazine editorial, script development and creative producing. She began as a film and arts critic for IF Magazine, Cinema Papers, Reel Time and Ninemsn. Her anthology plays 360 Positions In a One Night Stand, Words and Pictures and All This Beautiful Life were produced for Sydney Film Festival, Griffin Theatre Company and The Production Company’s Australia Project in NYC respectively.

During that time she was a creative executive for Icon Films, Screen Australia and Madman, working on a huge and diverse range of films including Oscar-nominated, Bafta-winning Lion, cult hit The Babadook, The Dressmaker, The Sapphires and box office favourite Red Dog.
After producing feature film Below in 2019, Veronca returned to writing full-time, sharing credits on Florian Habicht documentary Spookers and Jackie Van Beek comedy Nude Tuesday. She has since developed television drama Sixteen with the support of the BBC and Duck Soup Films and Deep Field for Good Thing Productions, as well as projects for Bonafide and Three Tables.
Veronica has just completed a feature film version of prize-winning novel The Museum of Modern Love, and is now adapting graphic novel Eve Stranger for BBC Studios. Leticia Caceres will helm Veronica’s adaptation of Anne Deveson’s Tell Me I’m Here for Belvoir Street Theatre in August 2022. The play is the recipient of the prestigious Blake-Beckett Trust Award.
