First there is James Saves the Moon.
James and his family just moved to Iceland,
and the first thing he sees is-the MOON.
But the moon is far to low-and it needs saved.
James sets out to save it, and on his way,
he makes a new magical friend and a dragon!
Together the trio rescue the moon,
and a budding friendship begins!
And then comes Helga Returns.
While out on a walk one day James stumbles
upon a footprint so large and mysterious.
What could it be? His magical friends Syvok
comes to explore-and together they think
trouble could be around the corner!
The two creep up on Helga and the adventures continue!
What would come next, well of course some Lads.
Thirteen Santas! How neat!
Thinks James as he and Syvok set off on their third adventure.
Little did he know the mischief these Yule Lads were capable of getting them all into.
Raucous, laughs, and Yuletide joy are ahead making memories for James and friends!
When asked a few questions, here’s what Wendy had to say:
1 When did you first start writing?
2 Did you always want to be a writer? If not what did you want to be?
No, my education is urban planning, prelaw. I always thought I would either work at a government planning office or be a City Manager. Or strategic planning manager for a company. I have never worked for a government entity. But I find myself on many committees as a volunteer for government programs. Currently helping with Library Renovation Project locally.Although in my past working career I have always had to be creative to get things done and motivate employees.
3 What genre do you prefer to work within?Or do you mix it up?
Children, Urban Fantasy, Scifi.
4 Where does your inspiration for these stories (this story) come from?
My family. I started writing while living in Iceland. My son saw the moon sitting on the mountain and told me he can climb the mountain and touch the moon. Wrote the first draft within two days. Been writing ever since that day.
And yes my family lived in Akureyri, Iceland for two years. It was a blast.
5 What has your publishing experience been like?
Very good with Anchor Group Publishing
6 Do you have a certain routine you have for writing? i.e. You listen to music, sit in a certain chair?
I listen to music to distract me from the outside world.
7 How do you come up with characters names and place names in your books?
Family, Friends, people I have met through the years. I also look up meaning of words often.
8 In your most recent work, who is your favorite character and why?
My novel New Moon Brethren that I am currently working on one of the main Characters is Blaze. She is honest, grumpy, and a true friend.
10 How did you/do you market your work?
This is still a learning curve. My publisher gives us advice.
11 Can you describe the feeling you had when you saw your published book for the first time?
12 Favorite authors?
I have so many. I love every one of the Anchor Group and Xchyler Publishing Authors. I really like Willow Cross’s books, Karen Pokras Toz kids books. Anne McCaffrey, David Weber- Honour Harrington Series. I own nearly every Starwars book written and Elizabeth Peters Amelia Peabody series to name a few.
13 Have you ever suffered from a “writer’s block”? What did you do to get past the “block”?
I usually go and edit or update my character files when I am blocked.
14 What piece of advice would you give to a new writer?
Write every day, rewrite, edit, have friends read then find a good editor. Hire a couple of Beta readers.
15 Are you working on anything new? If so, can you tell me about it?
I am currently working on a novel that is urban fantasy called New Moon Brethren. Secret society that has been around for a long time protecting sentient beings on earth. Trying to keep one step ahead of the dark one from taking over the world.
