Veronica Thornton a.k.a. Vee was always gifted with the art of verbal and written communication although she was never a big talker yet quite the observer and listener. In her youth she wrote notes to herself and others when she could not verbalize what she was feeling. Many thought her writings to be poetic and inspiring in nature. Her empathetic feelings caused her to keep writing later in life as a way to release all the emotions and questions that were presented to her that otherwise remained nonverbal. While most of her writings remained private it was during her educational pursuits Vee was strongly encouraged to pursue a writing career due to her versatility in topics, styles and ability to articulate her thoughts in a clear, creative yet relatable manner.
Vee is from Cleveland, Ohio and a mother of 2. She is a member of several online poetry groups and has had several highlights thus far with features in several poetry anthologies and online magazines such as The Ohio Poetry Association’s 2016 journal “Common Threads”, Poetic Melodies an anthology of poems centered around music along with a feature included in a book about domestic violence “Out of the Storm Love Shouldn’t Hurt” by author Patrice Ingram.
