(Founder: Wendy Hughes)
hails from south Wales and now lives in Walton-on-Thames in Surrey with her husband. She has two grown up sons.
She turned to writing as an outlet for her frustrations when ill health and poor vision forced her to give up work at the age of 38 in 1988.
She writes on a variety of subjects including regional areas of Wales, myths and legends and health matters.
Wendy also enjoys writing about the quirky side of life, eccentricities and larger than life characters. In fact, said Wendy 'I write about anything that I find fascinating or unusual.'
Wendy has spent many years campaigning, working and writing on behalf of people affected by Stickler syndrome, a condition from which she herself also suffers. She founded the Stickler Syndrome Support Group and spends a great deal of her time raising awareness of the condition amongst the medical profession.
In addition Wendy also presents talks and instructs on the craft of writing.
She also enjoys listening to New Orleans/Dixieland Jazz and travelling as well as visiting Neolithic and Iron Age sites, and has been studying the History of Medicine for the past eight years.
She is working on a novel set in 2000 BC, her main character being a medicine man, thus combining her two loves - prehistory and medicine.|
Wendy seriously loves writing - she has had 20 non-fiction books published ranging from local histories to a medical book!
She has also had over 1000 articles published in magazines as diverse as The Lady, Funeral Service Journal, On The Road, 3rd Stone, Celtic Connections, as well as, for the last five years, a regular column in Ninnau, an American/Welsh newspaper for Welsh ex-patriots.
