Whendy Schmidt has loved writing since she was a child and took every opportunity to drive her parents and friends crazy by making them read and re-read stories she was crafting at the time. Growing up in various cities in the Northwest has influenced her writing to take place amongst the great dew-dropped evergreens of the Northwest, the frigid waters of its lakes, and rocky shores of its beaches. Some of her childhood was spent in Long Beach, Washington; Astoria, Oregon; and Puyallup, Washington.

While her past careers have been varied, her ultimate goal has been to obtain a teaching degree and embark on enriching the minds of future high school students by building a love for literature and English/Language Arts in them. She works on her own writing in her spare time.

Most of Whendy’s writing comes in the form of poetry or creative non-fiction; her favorite genre, however, is creative fiction in the sci-fi/fantasy category. Some of her work, and the best way to contact her, can be found on her Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/writerteach/.
