About this author

I'm an Australian who enjoys writing, reading, travel and family. My husband and I live by the sea with our adorable mini Schnauzer. Our two grown children have their own families now and we cherish the time we spend with them.

Writing The Unhewn Stone took up a great deal of time and kept me in 14th century Switzerland for years. Now I'm trying to write a modern day mystery closer to home, but an earlier wip is drawing me back to the dense, dark forests where witches, dragons and elves are tempted to cross a forbidden boundary. I'm torn between the two.

In the meantime I edit a free monthly ezine designed to promote authors and entertain readers. If you have a movie review, pet or travel experience you'd like to share, I'll be more than hap...more

Snow White's Slide by Edith Parzefall
Rate this book
Clear rating
For one who has never climbed a mountain and can’t cope with heights, Snow White’s Slide was a great adventure. So believable, my heart was in my mouth at the dizzying heights and narrow ledges. I sensed the danger in Nature and in the climbers.

Bess Hi Wendy,

Thank you for your comment. My age is fictitious, but I was indeed born in Aruba as was my brother, though my family moved to Venezuela when I was 2 where I lived for 10 years before "returning" to the United States. Both my parents were American citizens...

Jassy Hi Wendy!

I don't know how to add Random Violence to my book list because it's not available on Amazon.com so it's actually rather stupid - the only book on my profile is Best of SA which I didn't even write!!! I've sent them a mail asking how to do it - hopefully they will allow me to add it from Kalahari.net, the South African Amazon.com!


Christine London Doesn't Rosalie have a beautiful cover? Dang!
Thanks for finding me here, Wendy!
Christine London

Savannah Wendy, thank you for the friendship.
Stay naughty,
