I'm a writer, part-time housewife with a Master of Arts at University. My Masters was a project, involving writing a book with an accompanying thesis. The topic was: Severance Packages: A Crime / Paranormal Novel and Exegesis focussing on the Electronic and Digital publication of Creative Writing. I also have a Bachelor of Arts Degree with Majors in Professional Writing (creative writing, editing & publishing) and Communications (mass media & gender imaging) with electives in Literary Studies & Sociology and Teaching Diploma.

I'm a 'Jill of all trades' - Teacher, curriculum consultant, travel consultant, International Airline employee in passenger & cargo areas at Melbourne International Airport & city offices, and a Professional Dog Trainer! I've had articles published in 'The Sunbury Times' & 'The Anthony Warlow international Newsletter.'

In 2002, 'Wendave' has commenced producing audio versions of my books. A truly global internet enterprise, with the production team and studio based in Petersburg Virginia USA, with the skilled & talented voice actress Amy Howard-Wilson. The publishing, sales & promotion department is based in Sunbury, Victoria Australia, at the Laing's house! The audio books are a labour of love & an exciting project. The CD's are in MP3 format and can be played on any CD player!

The audio books are available via the internet from Wendy, Amy and will be distributed through Wendy's publisher, Writer's Exchange E-publishing along side the publisher's e-book and printed book format's of each book.
