Although, they are often transmitted and received in different ways. From the beginning Vee tells you exactly who she is in the poem entitled “Who Am I” as she addresses all of those things within the pages to follow. It is a book that will leave you feeling inspired while also giving you a different perspective about some things.  Overall it will definitely lead to having deeper conversations also known as colloquies.

Veronica Thornton a.k.a. Vee is the author of “Universal Colloquies Inside of Me” was always gifted with the art of verbal and written communication although she was never a big talker yet quite the observer and listener due to her severe childhood skin issues that plagued her until approximately 19 which helped her see people differently than others because many refuse to look past aesthetics to see the true person.  Looking beyond the surface was/is her specialty because many make assumptions based on appearance unaware that some things are beyond a person’s control. She quickly learned that some of the ugliest people are packaged very well.  Her empathetic feelings towards others also caused her to look within herself for answers that many had no answers for or did not want to address. 
It took some time and searching for Vee to learn and accept what her purpose is.  She seemed to have a knack for writing and for some time brushed it off as others just being kind.   She went from job to job never quite finding her niche when she wasn’t working she was focusing on her education attending various institutions of higher education.  In her educational pursuits she has received a Medical Secretary diploma as well as an Associate’s degree in Business Management while dabbling and researching philosophy, psychology and religion. As her interests are vast in nature her curiosity and ability to be open minded led to many discussions and debates among various people from different cultures and economic backgrounds further educating her on the ways people view the world.  She has an appreciation for all things creative and artistic which she found to be her strengths which include writing, painting and photography.
Vee is from Cleveland, Ohio a mother of 2, poet, author, writer, motivational speaker, and counselor.  Many refer to her as a free spirit which she views as a compliment because to love and be loved is one of the greatest feelings a person can have and give.
