Wendy Smith

Dublin, Ireland


I am recently retired and am now concentrating on writing full time. I have been writing poety since I was fourteen and have recently turned my attention to fiction writing. I am currently working on my third full length manuscript. I like to write about topics that interest me, such as homelessness. I have just completed a manuscript based in the world of horseracing. This is a topic in which I have a very personal interest, having known the joy and heartbreak attached to horse ownership. Manuscript has been sent to a few prospective agents.

I have travelled extensively and was awarded the keys to the cities of Jacksonville and Melbourne, Florida.
I have been acting since an early age and some time ago I completed a two year deploma course with Brendan Smith Theatre Academy in Dublin and before that attended Acadamy of Dramatic Art run by Ray McNally. I have had the pleasure of treading the boards with Donal McCann in "Hamlet" at the Gaeity Theatre in Dublin.
