About this author

Wendy Gillissen has always been fascinated by dreams and the supernatural.

After graduating in Clinical Psychology she specialized in dreamwork and past life therapy.

Inspired by her experiences with the mystical world and a trip to the Mycenaean ruins of Kefalonia, Wendy began writing spiritual fantasy adventures. Her award-winning début novel, Curse of the Tahiéra was published in May 2009.

In 2007 Wendy became a member of OBOD (the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids). In her spare time she plays the Celtic harp.

Today I heard that my début novel Curse of the Tahiéra won the Silver medal in the Readers Favorite Book Awards (category Fantasy - Sci-Fi)!
I am so honored and happy! Happy dance!!!:-D
