International bestselling author Wendy Terrien received her first library card at age two, and a few years later started writing her own stories. She is Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers' 2017 Independent Writer of the Year.
Her debut novel, The Rampart Guards (February 2016), earned a Kirkus starred review and was named to Kirkus Reviews’ Best Books of 2016.
In addition to her novels, Wendy published a short story, “The Fate Stone,” in the award-winning anthology Tick Tock: Seven Tales of Time (March 2016), and “Light” in the award-winning Off Beat: Nine Spins on Song (April 2017), both from Wicked Ink Books.
Wendy graduated from the University of Utah (go Utes!) and transplanted to Colorado where she completed her MBA at the University of Denver. She focused her marketing expertise on the financial and technology industries until a career coach stepped in and reminded Wendy of her passion for writing. Wendy began attending writers’ conferences, workshops, and retreats, and she hasn’t stopped yet.
Wendy lives in the Denver area with her husband, Kevin, and their three dogs: Maggie, Shea, and Boon. All of her dogs are rescues, and Wendy is passionate about promoting shelter adoptions. If you’re in Colorado, you may even be able to spot her by her “Adopt a Shelter Pet” license plates.
