About veronicazundel

I'm a professional writer, amateur mother, and churchless Mennonite (ie I don't have a Mennonite church to belong to any more, so am currently attending an Anglo-Catholic church with an evangelical vicar!). I live in north London with my husband, adult son and a fat fluffy cat. I'm a second generation refugee kid, and eat Marmite on matzo crackers every morning.
