Author event and giveaway: Wendy Wax
Wendy calls herself a stay at home mom, but she’s really a work at home mom. She’s worked in radio, television, film, and publishing. She’s the author of 8 novels and 2 category romance novels – her first two novels were romance and the rest have been women’s fiction. She said her stories have become more complex because she wants each book to tell a similar story without repeating previous books.
Wendy’s newest book, Ocean Beach, is a continuation of the story that was started in Ten Beach Road – as a matter of fact, it picks up 6 months later. It’s the first sequel Wendy has ever written, and it’s already outselling its predecessor. The books tell the story of a group of women renovating historic homes. Wendy jokingly referred to home renovation as “porn for women,” and said she did research with renovators and decorators before she wrote the books.
Someone mentioned a children’s book author named Wendy Wax and she told us that they’ve met and discovered they have the same grandfather. Writing must be in their genes!
