My twentieth book (The Candymakers and the Great Chocolate Chase) came out this year. That feels like a big milestone when I worked so hard and dreamed so long of just writing one good enough to get published. I’ve thought a lot about gratitude over the years (Oprah really had something with that gratitude journal idea, or at least that’s where I first heard of it.) If you start writing down four things at the end of each day that you’re grateful for, you’ll spend your whole day looking for w
Thank you to everyone who helped land THE CANDYMAKERS AND THE GREAT CHOCOLATE CHASE on the New York Times Children’s bestseller list and the Indie Booksellers Children’s bestseller list on its first week out! I’d send you each a basket of candy if I could (although I’d probably eat it first)!! I hope everyone who submitted a suggestion for the book in previous blog comments realizes how awesome their ideas were, and a ton of them show up in the book–especially the suggestions for clever tag l
Hi All! This is the newsletter I sent out to anyone who signed up on the website to receive book news. It’s chock full of updates (Voyagers, the Candymakers sequel, Space Taxi and more). I’ll update the pages here on the website to include the new books very soon. Can’t seem to cut n paste it, but here’s the link.
Hope you’re having fun in the sun! (wear sunscreen, drink water, read a book under the shade of a leafy tree :o)
Hi!! I’m excited to announce that GRACEFUL is out TODAY, April 28th!! This time it’s REALLY the last book in the Willow Falls series! THE LAST PRESENT is out in paperback today too, so it’s a great time to catch up on the series if you’re behind.

Hi guys!! I hope everyone is having a great start to school! It’s almost ninety degrees here in Jersey today, so I say it’s clearly still summer. :O)
I promised some news updates, and here ya go.
A few years ago I wrote two books for teenagers called LEAP DAY and HEAVEN LOOKS A LOT LIKE THE MALL. They both have main characters in high school and deal with high school themes. Since then I’ve fallen in love with writing books that have younger characters, and these two books sor

Thank you for your patience!
Later gaters, Wendy

I had a blast writing for younger readers this time around. Space Taxi: Archie Takes Flight is the first in the series. The second, “Space Taxi: Water Planet Rescue,” will be out in September.
Check out the awesome (and informative!) website our publisher is making for the series. They have lots of cool stuff planned in the coming months but you’ll be able to check out a preview now, focusing on the science behind the story. You can also read a sneak peek of the story!
THE CANDYMAKERS’ CHOCOLATE CHALLENGE
coming out Spring 2016

The title might change, but the plot will involve Logan, Daisy, Philip and Miles hitting the road in a tricked-out RV to find Logan’s grandfather’s original formula for the Life is Sweet chocolate. Each character will have their own motivation for going on the tri
Ok, so here’s the thing. You guys are AWESOME! And you’re not afraid to ask for what you want, that’s for sure! I’m sorry for the wait…but here goes. Like I said…two sequels. One I still can’t officially tell you for a few more days, (but if I HAD to give a hint…I’d say it […]
