Wendy has a Masters in Social Work and worked in the child welfare field for twelve years before she decided to pursue her dream of writing.

Between teaching college classes, trying to get her morbidly obese cat to slim down, and tempering the will of her five-year-old granddaughter, who's determined to become a witch when she turns six so she can fly on her broom to see the Eiffel Tower and put hexes on people—not necessarily in that order—somehow Wendy still manages to fit in writing. She spends the remainder of her days inflicting mayhem on her hero and heroine until they beg for mercy.

I think sometimes your creativity needs a bit of respite to replenish or 'fill the well' as it is commonly called. I like to take a long walk or listen to music or maybe even watch a movie. (less)

Writing is a tough business. If you let criticism, jealousy or negativity stop you from doing what you love, then you've allowed others to take away your spirit. Never give people that much power over you regardless if it's writing or book or anything else in life. (less)

Wendy Byrne, The Millionaire's Deception

“Here’s the deal: no touching, no hand-holding, no flirting, no sexy talk, no dancing, and absolutely no kissy face.”

“You didn’t mention no sex, did you? I might have you on a technicality.”


“You and me alone, eating, talking, maybe even having a good time. Yeah, it might be a date.”


“I’ve seen what’s in your pantry, and I respect my arteries too much to indulge.”

“That’s the thing about snakes—even if they’re harmless, they look like such badasses it doesn’t really matter.”

“You’re lying. You’re really wearing a pair of granny panties.”
