Writing is My Passion!

I have been writing professionally since 2000 but I never considered myself a “real author.” Then something happened…in February 2016 I published my first of thirteen best-selling books and I haven’t stopped since. Writing is my life!

As a passionate writer and a woman who really ran with the Wolves in minus sixty below, I am inviting you to join me as I share my wisdom of animals, nature, spirituality, and intuition in my books and article

My job in this world is to create, inspire, dance, and share my wisdom through my writing

As an internationally best-selling author, with years of experience with writing and self-publishing, I not only write about my own experiences and wisdom but I have helped authors all around the world get books written, and in the hands of adoring fans by trusting their intuitionI would love to help you!

What Authors Are Saying

Without Wendy’s encouragement and guidance, my dream of becoming a children’s author would have never left the ground. She is a patient and very knowledgeable teacher who will guide you in every aspect of your writing from beginning to end! She has been an invaluable asset. Love her!

Cassie Cloutier, Up and Coming Author

Wendy guided me through the vast and sometimes bewildering landscape of self-publishing. She offered useful suggestions about expanding sales and exposure for my books. Even as an experienced self-publisher, Wendy’s knowledge helped me to navigate the ever-changing publishing landscape.

Joey Emil Blum, Author of Bedtime Stories, The Sawmill Ballroom Guide to Growing Lavender, and more

If you are a writer who aspires to be published, you are lucky to have landed here. Wendy is a tireless contributor of tips and an invaluable guide to less experienced authors. Her creativity, energy, and dedication both to her craft and to her fellow writers make her an outstanding figure in the world of self-publishing.
