Wendy N. Wagner grew up in a town so tiny it didn’t even have a post office.

Exciting announcement!

Delighted to announce that I’ve signed with agent Lane Heymont of The Tobias Literary Agency!

It turns out that Lane is just as excited about horror as I am (and that’s saying something!), so I’m thrilled and delighted to get to work together. Hopefully we’ll be able to usher lots of slimy, spooky, and all-around weird stuff into the world!

“You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.”
Madeleine L'Engle

“The road to hell is paved with adverbs.”

Stephen King

“If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot.”
Stephen King
