Wendy A. Simpson started writing at five after a family friend gave her an old typewriter. It was a story by Ray Bradbury that turned her towards fantasy and science-fiction. After writing several manuscripts she completed a young adult fantasy, published by a now defunct small press. She chalked it up to experience and continued to learn about the craft.
Gunslinger Witch was a NaNoWriMo work, and the idea came to her after researching women of color in the Old West and came upon Stagecoach Mary Fields. She knew she had to write about her. She has a firm belief the industry needs more writers of color and their stories.
Wendy considers herself the world’s biggest bibliophile. When she’s not writing, she’s working in her garden, video gaming and creating and streaming videos. The original Delaware native, she shares her home with her diva cat Maxi and her oldest brother. Wendy is active on social media and loves discussing the business.
