A Little About Wendy...A native of St Petersburg, Florida, Wendy has come a long way since her days at Sunshine Elementary School. As a child she read voraciously, was a regular at her local library, and became fast friends with Nancy Drew and Anne of Green Gables. Her love affairs with language and storytelling paid off beginning with her first shift at the campus radio station while studying journalism at the University of Georgia.
The mother of a toddler and an infant when she decided to change careers, she admits it was not the best timing in terms of productivity. “I’m still not certain why I felt so compelled to write my first novel at that particular time,” she says, “but that first book took forever.” Since then she’s written six more books, including Single in Suburbia and THE ACCIDENTAL BESTSELLER. Her work has been sold to publishers in ten countries and to the Rhapsody Book Club. Her novel, Hostile Makeover, was excerpted in Cosmopolitan magazine.
What did I think?! I loved The Accidental Bestseller! The writing was great! The story was fun! And I really enjoyed the time I spent with Kendall, Mallory, Tanya & Faye. These women were flesh & blood - realistic and they reacted to situations just like I would! They were believable. With a wry sense of humor and a touch of magic The Accidental Bestseller made me laugh & want to share the comfort of a good cry. The book is a testament to the deep friendships women develop with each other and how those friendships can sustain us in our darkest moments and lift us higher in the happiest of times . It was an interesting look at the book publishing industry and made me so happy that authors go thru all that stress to give us these pages to escape into! Thanks Wendy for a great read!
