Hi! I'm Wendy. I write fantasy books about damaged heroes and vengeful villains, real life places and faraway worlds, ancient myths and dark magic, fate and free will. I'm currently working on my first epic fantasy trilogy, THE CRYSTAL KEEPER. Set between present day Scotland and the medievalesque world of Galidom, the story centres around two dysfunctional families from two different worlds, bound by blood, fate, and two mysterious crystals.

I live with my husband and two sons in the Scottish Borders. BC (Before Children) I worked as a Senior Occupational Therapist in the field of neurology and medicine for ten years.

Being able to put my vivid imagination and creative energy into writing a story that I really care about, and then having the opportunity to share it with potentially thousands of readers across the globe is an amazing feeling, if a little scary. Okay quite a lot scary, but for a self-published author, seeing your work on major ebook stores or in print for the first time is a glorious moment that should be cherished.

2. I find researching ideas and getting the first draft down on paper a very satisfying part of writing. There's no greater feeling than when you're in the zone and your fingers can't type fast enough.

3. There are few careers that gives you the flexibility to write at a time that works for you, no office politics and bitching, and where you can start your working day in your PJ's. It doesn't get better than that!

Moving Mountains

Belated Happy New Year.  2021, I think it’s fair to say, wasn’t much of an improvement on the previous cruel year. Frustrating, disheartening and emotionally exhausting are the three words that best describe my hard and bumpy journey over the last twelve months. The brain […]

Topics Mentioning This Author

“We are each gifted in a unique and important way. It is our privilege and our adventure to discover our own special light.”
Mary Dunbar

“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

“Never laugh at live dragons.”
J.R.R. Tolkien

“Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisioned by the enemy, don't we consider it his duty to escape?. . .If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we're partisans of liberty, then it's our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!”
J.R.R. Tolkien

“May it be a light to you in dark places, when all other lights go out.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
