The emblem on the book cover of “Shrouded in Secrets, A Memoir
of Hidden Treasures from Life-Altering Events," is taken from a
wall sculpture created by artist, John Petrey, made of a ruffled metal
bodice and softened skirt. The sculpture itself is hanging above Rev.
Veronica's computer as inspiration.
The top part of the dress sculpture is constructed from Tiffany
green patina textured copper, and oiled Lokta Nepalese paper with
inlaid jute for the skirt. The designs are illustrative of the male/
female aspects of Veronica’s readers and clients she refers to as
Shield Maidens. She applies herself as Truth Seeker/Soul
Keeper, Champion of Shield Maidens.
In the inlaid jute square sections of the skirt as on the book covers
are topics of revelatory dreams, twin womb survival, triangles,
shadow identity, soul journey, assertiveness, inner healing work, caregiving, business challenges, illnesses, honor and faith.
The Shield Maiden’s Woven Metal Threads of Resilience express
the combined epitome of a Shield Maiden as sometimes vulnerable,
but honest in their feelings, as well as that of ultimately possessing
towering strength, insight and generosity of spirit.
Her 2nd memoir is entitled "The Priceless Truth, A Bold
Examination of Betrayal, Domestic Violence, Deaths and the
Opiate Crisis." Her comprehensive guidebook, "A Shield
Maiden's Handbook" rounds out Rev. Veronica's bold destiny in
Rev. Veronica's greatest aspiration is to watch Shield Maidens open
up to discovering their individual True Images and Soul Missions,
underneath their obstacles, developing grit and potential through
the healing of grief, and coping with change, loss and recovery.
Rev. Veronica's book offerings are expressive of Veronica's riveting One Woman Journey about turning her wounds into wisdom, and tears into triumph. She survived life experiences of near death and redemption, wherein she faced peril, distress and trials for a higher purpose.
Her first book chronicles transcending adversity from abusive relationships during childhood, including incest, betrayal and abandonment experiences arising from recovered repressed memories. As a result she found her specialized brand of assertiveness and independence.
