Veronica Heritage-Gorrie

Veronica Heritage-Gorrie is a proud Kurnai woman. Veronica is still affected by the racism and traumatic events she experienced during her years in the police. Gorrie frankly and movingly explores the impact of racism on her family and her life, the impact of intergenerational trauma resulting from cultural dispossession, and the inevitable difficulties of making her way as an Aboriginal woman in the white-and-male-dominated workplace of the police force. Veronica Heritage-Gorrie’s debut memoir, Black and Blue will be forthcoming published by Scribe Publications. She is passionate and skilled in non-fiction memoir and is excited to extend this to film writing
