Veronica Lando Books & Biography


Veronica Lando is an emerging Australian crime writer with a taste for the quirky and creepy. Growing up in a flat above her parents' Melbourne book shop, she feels as if she were born with words running through her veins, waiting to explode out onto the page. Now, living in Queensland, Veronica likes to use the uniquely wild and dangerous landscapes of the north to shape her stories. She enjoys writing plot-driven stories that grab the reader at the first sentence and don't let them go until the final full stop. She believes each chapter, each character interaction, and each unwritten word, should ratchet up the tension.

In 2020, Veronica won third place in the Sisters in Crime Scarlet Stiletto Award and was also published through the Queensland Writers Centre. Exceptionally motivated, she thrives on deadlines and wrote her first draft in just eleven weeks. She now harbors a burgeoning desire to move towards a career as a full-time novelist.
