Wendy Howard writes dark stories mixed with comedy for all ages. Her main focus is creating action-packed stories for young people into gaming. She also loves writing flash fiction and has completed over a hundred short stories.
Wendy was born in the south suburb of Chicago and grew up in an average American middle-class home with her parents and two younger sisters. She has watched countless horror movies since the age of six, and has become a bit of an addicted to any form of media that that aims to scare. Today she lives near Denver, Colorado with her ever growing family. She hikes daily with her husband and 2 beagles, drinks much too much wine, and watches way too many zombie movies.
At the age of twenty-two, Wendy joined the U.S. Air Force. During eight years of military service, she worked in communications and spent a few years in Germany before moving to Colorado Springs, Colorado in 1990. She settled in Colorado after leaving the service and doesn’t plan to live anywhere else until the wind carries her ashes from the mountains out of the state. Unless of course, she has a chance to move back to Germany.
Wendy has been an IT geek and professional writer for thirty years. In 1995 she started developing websites and has been writing and editing anything from technical documents to marketing articles to newsletters for nonprofit organizations just as long. The whole while she dreamed of being a full-time fiction writer. In 2008 her dream came true when she wrote Call for Obstruction, the first in The Courier series, and it won the 2009 Textnovel Writing Contest. Of course she ended up re-writing it countless times, but it was finally published for the final time in 2016.
