At age ten, Wendy Brant wrote her first book, My Mysterious Double, the story of a girl and an impostor pretending to be her. Years later, after graduating with a degree in journalism from Northwestern University and completing the Publishing Institute at the University of Denver, Wendy wrote adult fiction (albeit unpublished) while working as an HR manager and being a mom.

I'm still getting the hang of this "being an author" stuff. :-) I'm so glad you enjoyed Zenn Diagram! Yes, I would LOVE to publish more books, and the likelihood of that increases the better that Zenn Diagram does, so spread the word! As for what I'm working on -- I have a completed YA dystopian story that I'd love to see published someday, and I'm also working on a contemporary YA. Hopefully you'll be able to read both of them in the future!

Thanks again for the question!(less)

Well ... at the time I started writing Zenn Diagram, my daughter was a freshman in high school and I watched her struggle with allowing herself to be vulnerable. It was hard for her to let other people see her weaknesses and struggles. And I wondered... what if you couldn't hide your vulnerabilities? What if someone could see them right from the start? And I think that's where the idea for Eva's gift came from. I hope that answers your question!(less)
