More About the Author


Author Bio

Wednesday Lee Friday was born November 24th, 1970 in Royal Oak, Michigan. It was a Tuesday.

After deciding against being a ballerina, an ichthyologist, and a famous singer, she decided to become a novelist just before starting kindergarten.

Wednesday went to college in Olivet, Michigan where she majored in theatre and broadcasting for some reason. She wrote and produced radio dramas for WOCR-FM and directed occasional performances at the Oaks Theatre. Much to her parent's dismay, she intended to investigate a career in technical theatre. She began working in professional theatre in 1993. She enjoyed it immensely until her paychecks bounced, forcing her to find work that would actually pay the bills. Wednesday worked many varied jobs including fast-food manager, copywriter, reptile wrangler, tarot reader, radio commentator, activist, cashier, community organizer, video store manager, phone sex operator, violin salesman, and concierge to name a few.

In 2004, Wednesday won her first attempt at NaNoWriMo with 80% of the draft for: A Stabbing for Sadie. After its completion the following year, Wednesday began the long search for a publisher. She amassed many, many rejection letters until she finally received a positive response from Kris Stamp of StoneGarden.net publishing. Preview chapters are available as audiobook podcasts on iTunes and at the author's website. A Stabbing for Sadie is soon to be released in a 2nd Edition from Crossroad Press.

In 2006, Wednesday began work on her second novel The Cat's Apprentice, about a woman who believes her husband's mischievous cat is trying to kill her. Eventually, this novel was picked up for publication by StoneGarden.net publishing as well.

Her third novel, Kiss Me Like You Love Me, took three years to write. The story of a serial killer and his boyhood friend was released Valentine's Day 2010. It is now available in a 2nd Edition from Crossroad Press. It is damn scary and crazy dark. Preview chapters are available as audiobook podcasts on iTunes and at the author's website.

Available Now: The Finster Effect. A horrifying tale of zombies, pets gone mad, and the perils of small town living; she had a swell time writing it. Wednesday Lee Friday's fourth novel promises to scare the hell out of you, and maybe even make you throw the book across the room in disgust and abject horror. Please, don't void your Kindle warranty on her account. Start with the paperback. They're easier to sign.

Currently Wednesday lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan with her husband and two crafty cats. She enjoys Shostakovich, Dexter, loom knitting, The Simpsons, crafty things, quality horror of all kinds, and kettle cooked potato chips. She covers general undead goodness at Zombie Zone News, sexy stuff at Kinkly.com, and a variety of TV for GeekBinge.com Hit her up on Facebook, Dreamwidth, @WednesFri on Twitter.

Format: Paperback
This is the second book from a great new author Wednesday Lee Friday. Her debut novel, "A Stabbing for Sadie"A Stabbing for Sadie is an intense look into the mind of a killer. In this, her second novel Friday shows us how quickly life can change and that sometimes you just can't avoid your destiny.

The story follows the separate lives of two women after meeting at a high school reunion and we quickly learn that appearances can be deceiving. In real life everyone has a dark side, and Friday's characters follow this trend. Everyone has their secrets and their reasons for keeping them. Friday keeps the reader guessing from page one, weaving a suspenseful tale of magic, heartache, revenge and deceit.

Like her first book, Friday keeps the story interesting until the very end, finally giving the reader the answers they crave with the last few sentences. Her books are thoughtfully written and very realistic leaving the reader with a certain sense of unease that makes you take a look at yourself and wonder what you would do in a similar situation.

Wednesday Lee Friday is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. Her characters are easy to like (even the "bad guys"), her plot lines are creative and absorbing, and best of all, her stories make you ask yourself some tough questions. I'm looking forward to Friday's next publication and hope she continues writing for a long time!

Format: Paperback
The Cat's Apprentice is Wednesday Lee Friday's second book, following her excellent debut, A Stabbing for Sadie. Her new story is another page turner, following former classmates Irene Smythe and Molly Jean Mischner on their paths to self-discovery and empowerment.

Well, except that when Ms. Friday's involved, we're not exactly talking about enlightenment and uplift. As with a Stabbing for Sadie, here there be demons, both real and imagined. Irene believes her husband's cat is trying to kill her. And it really is a shame about Mother.

As with her first book, Friday's deft use of language brings The Cat's Apprentice to life. Her ability to create interesting characters, true-to-life dialogue, and an unpredictable plot is impressive. The story's funny, too. Check it out.

This is Friday's second book and it comes packed with more mind games for the reader to try and figure out. I won't give the plot and ending away but it is certainly surprising and somewhat funny. Friday uses a lot of dark humor as she did with "A Stabbing For Sadie". Great read!

Although I found it a little quirky, the more I read on, the more excited I became to see what the ending would be like, what I call poetic justice!! A nice length story, not too long and nice twists to it.

Format: Paperback
This is the second book of the Wednesday Lee Friday's that I have read, and it's quite different than the first. I have to admit it was a little bit bizarre for me in the second half, but I really like how it all tied in together. The most refreshing part of the author's writing is that it's unique in a time where I am easily bored with what is often a template in genre books, which is not what I get when reading her books.

Finally, the author's biggest strength is how descriptive her writing is without going overboard. Some books don't give enough detail, while others drone on and on giving too much detail. I feel that Friday has just the right amount of description to allow the picture to be drawn in my head without skimming over the unnecessary details.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a totally original book that works. We start with two women who distrust each other at a high school reunion, follow their disastrous lives...then see a resolution through the eyes of metamorphosed cats.

It is a totally confusing jig saw puzzle that all fits together in the end (and by the end I mean the last page). Just when the hippie-witchcraft stuff starts to lose you, we are back to a real-life drama with surprising ramifications (ram-i-fi-CAT-ions). Not at all a romanticized take on pets but a warning that there is more than meets the eye.

Even my dog liked it.

I found this book easy to follow, and had me always gussing what would happen next. Just when I thought I knew how things would end up, something else would happen and had me hooked again. I never guessed how it really ended up, but I laughed and said yeah...

Great job Wednesday, I look forward to the next one.

This is my first Wednesday Lee Friday novel, and definitely not my last. I would have read the book straight through had not a previous engagement with a friend who showed up and dragged me out of the book come up. Definitely a great read! Highly recommended for most anyone.
