Meet the Author

Veva Vonler, Ph.D., is a native Texan and lifelong movie fan. Her love of movies was possibly instilled before she was born when her mother saw almost every movie shown in the Arcadia Theater in little Ranger, Texas, while pregnant and waiting for her husband to return from World War II. Love of the movies was a family affair. Her great Aunt Myrtle played the piano for the silents shown in the Thurber, Texas Opera House. At age 12, Vonler won the local newspaper's contest for predicting that year's Oscar winners, earning a three-month free pass to the Campus Theater in Denton, Texas. Her professional life has included teaching writing and literature, international consulting on education, and university administration. She has written for a number of academic and popular publications such as The New Rambler and Westward Magazine and has co-authored a composition/literature text published by Harcourt Brace.
