Wendy Kitts is a writer, artist and graphic designer who loves to tell stories by pen, by brush or by mouse.
Wendy has been a freelance writer since 2000 and has written over 200 articles for publications such as Reader's Digest, More, Pacific San Diego and the Globe & Mail. She's the author of Sable Island: The Wandering Sandbar (Nimbus, 2011), a non-fiction children’s book for 7-12 year olds; and co-author of Breaking the Word Barrier: Stories of Adults Learning to Read (Goose Lane Editions, 2009), an anthology on literacy.
Wendy is passionate about children's books and was a regular contributor of children's book reviews to Canadian Children Book News, the Globe & Mail, Atlantic Books Today, and the New Brunswick Reader (weekly column). For two consecutive years, Wendy was on the judging committee choosing the best in Canadian children’s literature for Our Choice (currently Best Books for Kids & Teens), an annual publication of the Canadian Children’s Book Centre.
Wendy loves being a freelancer as it allows her to both work in her pajamas, as well as write from her favourite place - the beach. Wendy lives oceanside year-round dividing her time between Mission Beach, California and Caissie Cape, New Brunswick.
