Meet the Author

Pets and their quirks have been a part of Wendy Bedwell-Wilson’s life for as long as she can remember, but it was through her profession that she grew to truly appreciate them. After working in the publishing industry as a writer and editor for a variety of pet-themed trade, consumer, and online magazines for nearly 15 years, she ventured outside the cubicle and delved into writing professionally about four-legged friends from her home in Hawaii.
Her work has appeared in a range of pet publications, including Pet Product News, Veterinary Practice News, DogChannel.com, Cat Fancy, Koi World, FAMA, Aquarium Fish, Cats USA, Kittens USA, and the Popular Pets series. She completed one book — Yorkshire Terriers for the Animal Planet Pet Care Library series — before tackling Boston Terriers For Dummies. Her muses include a rescued Pointer-Hound mutt named Pete and two spoiled cats, Bubba and Benny. They’re no Boston Terriers, but they’re still little gentlemen.
