Wendy Delsol was born in Canada to English parents and grew up in suburban Detroit. She has an undergraduate degree from Michigan State University and a graduate degree from California State University, Long Beach.
After a year living and studying in France, Wendy moved to Los Angeles, where she remained for another twenty.
Post college, the rent was paid by waitressing, working as a French translator, and many years as a group tour coordinator in the travel industry.
Besides writing, her favorite job, ever, was mother to her two boys.
The writing bug bit at age forty. Wendy wrote her first novel and then took a year of writing classes through the UCLA Writers' Extension Program.
When her husband's job took the family to Des Moines, Wendy continued writing novels, took classes through the Iowa Summer Writers' Festival, and joined a local critique group.
Her young adult novel, STORK, was published by Candlewick Press in October of 2010. The second in the trilogy, FROST, was released on October 11, 2011. The third and final book, TIDE, is slated for publication in October of 2012.
