About

This Scottish-born Canadian writer has returned to her roots. Originally planning to spend a year exploring Scotland, she has moved permanently to her birth city of Edinburgh and is loving life there.

Wendy began writing in earnest in 2011, after being laid off during the economic decline of the big three auto companies in North America. Her first novel, Saving Grace, has received a 5-Star Readers Choice Award and set the stage for the Taylor Sinclair Series of novels that have followed to date – Unfinished Business, Runed, and Trafficked.

Strong female characters are Wendy’s passion and most of her main protagonists have suffered through childhood trauma, coming out the other side as strong, determined women. After Saving Grace was published, Wendy was awed and inspired by the women who contacted her to thank her for helping them to heal from their own childhood trauma. As a former Addictions counsellor, Wendy is well aware that there are far too many people, men and women, who have suffered trauma in their youth. The fact that she can help with their healing through her writing is humbling and motivating.

Wendy is currently querying agents with her latest novel, the first in a brand new series set in Edinburgh, Scotland featuring Detective Constable Maggie Glass. Each book in this series will be inspired by or based on a piece of Scottish history. She can’t wait for you to read it, but finding an agent and getting a book traditionally published can take some time. Don’t worry though, Wendy has other novels she’s working on that will be self-published.

Wendy’s other passions include reading, spending time with family and friends, and travelling and exploring Scotland. She hopes to spend more time travelling around Scotland, England, Wales, and Ireland … and possibly beyond.

She misses her son and the rest of her family back in Canada, but plans to visit them regularly or have them visit her in Scotland.
