Her plays Gargoyles, The Hamlet Interview, Oil in the Sound, and Booking Hold were produced to acclaim in Seattle. "Earnesto Visits the Five Spot" won a Bad Hemingway short story contest. Wendy's true story song about tugboats saving a floating Seattle bridge, "Tugboats Pullin' on the Bridge Lines" won the Seattle Maritime Folknet songwriting contest, and she won the Seattle Songs and Stories of the Sea oral storytelling contest with her story "Burial at Sea."

Wendy sailed as a deckhand in the US Merchant Marine for fifteen years, steering through typhoons and outrunning pirates. She can say "Arrgh!" in twenty-four languages, and all her sea stories are true. She holds two Master's degrees in English and can splice a twelve strand line while doing Shakespeare.
Wendy lives in the wilds of Washington State with her Siamese cats, who are extraordinarily kind to humans.
