Wendy McLeod MacKnight lives in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada, and wrote her debut novel at age nine. During her first career, she worked for the Government of New Brunswick, as the Deputy Minister of Education among other positions. She has been known to wander art galleries and have spirited conversations with the paintings – mostly in her head, though sometimes not. She hopes readers will be inspired after they read The Frame-Up to create their own masterpieces and visit their own local art galleries. And even better, she hopes they’ll come to Fredericton and visit the Beaverbrook Art Gallery and meet Mona and the rest of the characters in the book.

I typically like to keep this blog light, but…

a very sad thing happened in the community where I live last Friday and I think it’s hard to be light when your heart is grieving.


For those of you who don’t know, I live in a small province on the east coast of Canada, a small place that is home to a little more than 700,000 people in an area that is roughly the size of the State of Maine.


It’s a sl...

I loved The Edge of Everything, the first book in the series, but the sequel is just as good, if not better. Our favourite characters are back and we get to learn much more about The Lowlands, which is fascinating and horrible all at once. Jeff Giles ...more

“Maybe Jasmine was right. Maybe I did always think I was right and want things my own way. That was going to stop right now. I couldn't change the past, but I could change the future, and I could change me. And to do that, I had to put Lester first.”
Wendy McLeod MacKnight, It's a Mystery, Pig Face!

“What Ralph didn't get, and I knew too well, was that Pig Face was like glue. In the beginning it seems like he's just a harmless glue stick, something you can wash off easily with soap and water. Then he turns out to be crazy glue - you're stuck with him forever.”
