Wendy S. Russo got her start writing in the sixth grade. That story involved a talisman with crystals that had to be found and assembled before bad things happened, and dialog that read like classroom roll call. Since then, she’s majored in journalism (for one semester), published poetry, and entertained her friends with Star Wars fan fiction and epic fantasy novels. Her debut novel, January Black, won silver in the Coming of Age category of the 2013 Reader’s Favorite Awards.

A Wyoming native transplanted in Louisiana, Wendy is a wife, a mom, a Tiger, a Who Dat, and she falls asleep on her couch at 8:30 on weeknights.
