Veronica Bartles

Veronica Bartles, author of TWELVE STEPS (YA), and THE  

PRINCESS AND THE FROGS (PB), loves to ask “What If?” She believes there are many  sides to every story, and she’s determined to discover every single one! She believes the best  happily ever after is one nobody expects. Every princess deserves a frog (because princes aren't  pets!) and not every Cinderella wants a glass slipper. When not writing or reading, Veronica  likes to invent new cookie recipes and knit things from recycled plastic bags. And she’s an  incurable optimist who loves gray, drizzly days. That’s when rainbows come out to play! 

Veronica is the Assistant Regional Advisor for the MD/DE/WV Society of Children’s Book  Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) and the coordinator of the annual MD/DE/VA/DC Read  Local Challenge
