For example, I had a preschool teacher tell the class I had the mark of the devil, and when I was shopping with my mom, a lady with teenagers pointed and said, "Hey look kids, that kid doesn't need a halloween costume--she's already got one."

I like to ask "What if" questions when I write. A Monster Like Me was born because I wondered, what if I believed the people who called me a monster?(less)
Wendy S. Swore My next book is called The Wish and The Peacock. More details to come on that soon.

Cover Reveal for THE WISH AND THE PEACOCK


The Wish and The PeacockComing February 5th, 2020!I feel so fortunate to work with Shadow Mountain.  I loved the cover for A Monster Like Me and I love this cover too! I love how sneaky Paige looks here. In this story, Paige doesn't want her farm to sell, and she wants time enough to save a wounded peacock, so she's going to war with the real estate agent.

Um, nope. Not unless I know them in real life. Makani is cool though, you can visit with her. ;)


Nasuesue Wow! You have a lot of friends! Are some okay for me? MMMMMOOOMMMM?!


Stephanie Skeem Wendy,

Thanks! You're too sweet. I don't know. You're bio is pretty cool. Slaving away on the family truck looks pretty impressive to me. I'm terrible when it comes to those sort of things. :)

Nice to meet you too.
Steph.

Wendy Steph,
Your bio had me rolling. I've decided mine is entirely too straight laced. Maybe after NaNo I'll think of something a little different. The kids were most impressed by your shadow hoola-hooping too. You are one talented gal!

Nice to meet you by the by.
Wendy


Stephanie Skeem Love your quotes. Thanks for the add.
*Steph*

Absolutally. Seriously. Lots of other ly's. I loved the premise and I'd buy the book. Getting to read it early is icing on the cake. You have my email, I think.
