Wendy Lynn Clark is an award-winning author of Romance, Young Adult, and Science Fiction. A lifelong resident of the Pacific Northwest, she graduated magna cum laude from Lewis & Clark College with a degree in philosophy and a minor in English, volunteered with AmeriCorps, taught English in Japan with the JET Programme for three years, and resided abroad in England and Greece.
She knew she wanted to be a writer during the sixth grade Young Author project when her classmates turned in 2-4 page stories and she turned in an eighty-page, single-spaced, illustrated Nancy Drew fan-fiction opus. “Wendy Drew” lived in a Swiss Family Robinson-style tree-house that was both in the woods of Eastern Washington and also on the sea shore. She owned a cat and a pine squirrel. Half way through the book, she invented a Star Wars speeder bike out of driftwood.
After completing a master’s degree at the University of Brighton, she returned to books and now works in an academic library. She loves learning about cultures, from how different families live in her local neighborhood to how astronauts live on the International Space Station. She is drawn to write about the needs that unite us all—survival, family, adventure, and love.
