About the Author

Wendy: 'I am passionate about my writing, having written since I was eight and published since I was in my twenties. I have been interested in all aspects of history since I was a child and visited the nearest cemetery in my school lunchtimes, fascinated by the names and the dates on the graves, some of whom were my own antecedents. History and fiction were my great escape in my rather challenging childhood. By the time I was eleven I was reading five books a week from the library. Beginning to write my own stories in notebooks seemed the obvious next step.
My mother wrought unexpected magic when she somehow managed to get me into college so I could qualify as a teacher. She still urged me on and supported me when - by then married with two children - later I obtained a Master's Degree in Education and began to work at a teacher training college.
So it seems storytelling and writing and teaching have gone hand in hand throughout my life. Even when, having had several novels published, I moved to full-time writing, part of my professional life has been teaching at conferences as well as tutoring and mentoring. This has evolved into founding Room To Write with my writing colleagues Avril Joy and Gillian Wales - a small organisation promoting ideas of independent publishing as a way forward for writers.'
