After gaining a New Zealand Certificate in Science, Wendy Scott worked in a variety of different laboratories in New Zealand and Australia in the fields of salt, meat, dairy and wine.

While living in Adelaide, she spotted a course on Novel Writing offered by WEA.

She signed up immediately and made a commitment there and then that she would write a fantasy novel.

Wendy then completed other creative writing courses, joined the South Australia Writers’ Centre and published her first novel – Ferrasium.

Update: Wendy has just been announced as a finalist in this year's Wishing Shelf Awards!
