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.

JUNE!

Happy June!

As we all get vaccinated, there does seems to be a light-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel kind of feeling, doesn’t there?

I’ve been beavering away at my work in progress, which I expect to finish the first draft of by late June/early July! That’s when the heavy lifting starts, though to be honest, it started early on this project, as I just couldn’t find the voice.

But perseverence does indeed pa

This book is heartbreaking, affirming and loving all at once. Georgia’s story of the impact of her father’s alcoholism, is true, painful, and touching. Toss in some magic and hope, coupled with reality, and you have a brilliant story.

“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.”
