Veronika Dapunt is a writer of Ladin heritage who grew up in Austria, the US and the UK.

Her upcoming debut novel was a runner-up for the 2023 Comedy Women in Print Prize. She is a Faber Academy graduate and one of her short stories (‘Echoes’) was longlisted for the 2023 Bath Short Story Award.

Veronika has always had a love of the darkly comic and the absurd, quite possibly the reason why her first career was in law. In the past she has worked for the European Union and for a luxury goods business, where she was involved in international fashion shows, the Academy Awards and the James Bond franchise.

Veronika has a degree from the University of Oxford and currently lives in London with an opinionated mini-schnauzer called Cosette.
