- Wendy was born in South Australia, and still lives there. Some say this shows a lack of ambition but she says, ‘I’m just no good with maps.’ Handicapped all her life by an enormous gap between her two front teeth, limited sight and a tendency to faint when hot and emotional, she overcame all odds to become a fat, near-blind, gap-toothed wife of a Baptist pastor.
- She’s experimented with teaching, demonstrated cross-stitch, supervised university exams and sold women’s fashion. She even lasted four years as a librarian in a Theological College, before they wised up. She’s dreamed of being a writer since she was a child and is still pinching herself now that it has come true. She’s going to stop soon (the pinching), because it hurts.
- In 1993 she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and as a result had a mastectomy, six months of chemotherapy and then five weeks of daily radiotherapy. Subsequently, due to the damage done to her lymphatic system through surgery and radiation-treatment, she developed Lymphoedema in the right arm. She likes to share with other women her experiences during this period of her life, and what it is like living as a Cancer survivor. Although the Cancer has made a reappearance, she is still well and intends to live until her old age.
- She has a passion for Australian Rules Football (Go the Crows!) and she also enjoys watching a good game of tennis. But then, she loves watching just about any sporting event, and is delirious when the Olympics are on television.
- She has two adult children, a son and daughter in-law and two grandchildren. (All achieved at an incredibly young age.)
