Wendy Vella is a lover of all things romantic. She started reading her first Georgette Heyer book at a young age and instantly fell in love with the Regency era. Writing is something she has always found time for; she penned her first novel at eighteen though she says it will never make an appearance further than the closet in which it currently resides.
After having her two children, she then joined Romance Writers of New Zealand and started honing her chosen craft by entering competitions with some success and attending conferences.
Addicted to reading she loves a wide range of genres while her first love will always be historical. She relishes novels steeped in romance and excitement with feisty heroines and delicious heroes, especially when they are set amongst the treacherous waters of London society.
Wendy is a sucker for a happy ending, having secured her own. She has been married to her own dark brooding hero for 28 years and shares her home with two wonderful children, two dogs and anyone else who happens to be visiting at the time. Born and raised in a rural area in the North Island of New Zealand, Wendy loves the beaches and lush green rolling hills of her homeland and is proud to call herself a very patriotic Kiwi!
I'm a crazy rode cyclist. I ride with my husband and family and have been doing so for about five years now. I also like to swim, pool, or sea, I don't mind.
I read voraciously, anything in the romance genre, and have my favorite authors that I follow.
I love rugby, and can always be found on the side lines watching my son. He has warned me that I'm not to yell anymore, which is a shame, as I thought I was being encouraging lol.
