The writer at work

Editors almost always request a short author bio, written in the third-person. Here are some of mine (all true, of course):


When she isn’t working at one of her two day jobs, Shannon Wendt spends her time writing fiction and taking photographs. She lives in wind-blown, sun-blasted New Mexico with her husband and five rescued dogs. She dreams of verdant forests and rain.

Shannon Wendt once tried to change the nozzle of a garden hose while the water was running. It didn’t go so well for her and resulted in a great outburst of mirth from her husband. Depending on how you look at things, Ms. Wendt is either a ditzy clever person or a smart scatterbrain.
