Author Tags: Fiction

Veronica Schreiber grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba, where she was born on November 28, 1977. She received a B.F.A. in creative writing from Brooklyn College. In 2001, she received the Irwin Shaw Award for a short story, and Bertha & Philip Goodman Award for a short story. She lives in Black Creek on Vancouver Island.

Flash Baby is her first novel.

Narrated by a successful, chronically inebriated, twenty-five-year-old New York artist, Vivian Grimes, who feels trapped by booze, bad lovers, and ugly paintings, The Coffee Painter (Nice Press $14.94) is the second novel by Veronica Schreiber. Porn, glitter, and ugly ladies are what Vivian Grimes paints. Crown Royal, Guinness and Canadian Club are what she drinks. Bartenders, drunken losers and a high school janitor, who she’s still trying to forget, are the men in her life. Her days begin in the afternoon, hung over, with a horrible painting from the night before that she proceeds to fix into something she can sell.
