Veronica Goldbach grew up in San Antonio, Texas, and went to school less than five minutes away from the Alamo.  After receiving a B.A. in humanities and an M.A. in teaching middle grades from Trinity University, she became a public school teacher.  She has taught English as a second language at inner-city middle and elementary schools in San Antonio as well as in South Central Los Angeles.  Veronica became interested in writing young adult fiction while trying to find novels that her seventh-grade students could relate to and also enjoy.  Veronica is currently teaching future writers in San Antonio.  She lives in the inner city, close to where she grew up. Veronica shares her home with two dogs, two cats, two guinea pigs, and her sister Theresa.
