Veronica Clark's headshot

Veronica Clark is a triple Sunday Times, and an Irish Times bestselling author.

Veronica has been a journalist for 32 years, writing real-life features for both national newspapers, magazines and Sunday supplements. She has been a ghostwriter for ten years. During this time, she has written fourteen books for major publishers including HarperCollins, Penguin and Bonnier. Three of her books, Enslaved, The Hospital and The Baby Snatchers were all Sunday Times bestsellers. The Baby Snatchers was also an Irish Times bestseller. Veronica appeared at this year’s Hay Literary Festival (2021) as a panelist, discussing her work as the ghostwriter of ‘Enslaved’ on the subject of Modern Slavery.


As a journalist, Veronica covered major breaking news stories and has written hundreds of true-life stories. However, her real passion is to give a voice to those who have previously been silenced or ignored. She is currently writing book fifteen for a major UK publisher.


Veronica also has a Masters (Distinction) in Creative Writing from University of Glasgow.
