More About the Author
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.
