Wendy Wax is the USA Today bestselling author of twelve novels, including A WEEK AT THE LAKE, WHILE WE WERE WATCHING DOWNTON ABBEY, and her Ten Beach Road titles THE HOUSE ON MERMAID POINT, OCEAN BEACH, and TEN BEACH ROAD.

Her fiction explores friendship, loyalty, self-discovery and the seemingly insurmountable challenges life sometimes presents. Born in St. Petersburg, Florida, she grew up on St. Pete Beach within spitting distance of the Gulf of Mexico. Appropriately enough, Wendy attended Sunshine Elementary School where recess and art class sometimes took place on the beach, and the highlight of every school year was the annual fish broil. Not surprisingly, some of her favorite Florida beaches were destined to become settings for her best selling fiction.

Wendy's writing has been featured in national publications such as USA Today and Woman's World, and at online book sites such as On a Clear Day I Can Read Forever, Luxury Reading, Book Reporter, Night Owl Reviews and Fresh Fiction. In 2011 she was honored by the City of St. Pete Beach when the City Commission declared May 12th "Wendy Wax Day."

Prior to writing, Wendy worked in radio, television and film, most notably as writer, producer and host of The Home Front, which aired on PBS stations across the country, and as the host of a live Friday night radio show called Desperate & Dateless when she was both.

When not writing, Wendy spends much of her time speaking to writers groups and book clubs, enjoying time with her family, traveling, and reading. She lives in Atlanta, where she and her husband are adjusting to their new life as empty nesters.
