About Wendy Scott

As a child I had a ferocious imagination and immersed myself in creating stories and poems. One birthday I begged for a chemistry set, sensing the promise of adventure from the glittering vials of copper sulphate and salt. At that time, I didn’t know I was following in the footsteps of my grandfather who had studied science in Edinburgh in 1899. A further trace back into my Scottish ancestry uncovered an ancestor known as ‘the wizard’. So I could dabble with potions too, I gained a NZ Certificate in Science (Chemistry) and worked in a variety of laboratories (salt, meat, dairy and wine) in NZ and Australia. The wine tasted the best!
During my 5 years in Adelaide, Australia, I completed several writing courses at the WEA. When my partner, son (5 months), dog and I moved back to NZ we lived in a house truck for 3 years while our off-the-grid house was planned and built. During this period I wrote on a solar powered laptop and completed many correspondence courses from the AWA.
I write adult fantasy, children’s novels and I’m currently branching into romance.
In 2012 my children’s MS, Hieroglyph was selected for the NZSA MS Assessment Programme and was further selected for one of five mini-mentorships.
When I’m not glued to my laptop writing or engrossed in a book, I love walking my dog on the wild West Coast beaches and trolling for sea glass, riding my bike or going for bush walks. I always wished I could fly so maybe that’s why I love roller coasters. I’m a connoisseur of coffee and chocolate and I counter my addictions with Zumba and Spin classes. I believe life is an adventure and we should all live a life less ordinary.

Fantasy, action, adventure, mystery this fast paced story has it all. Vivid characters and an exotic setting combine into an exciting mix. I couldn't put it down and went straight onto reading the next one - Golden Scarab. An excellent fantasy read.

Review by: Karen Kattenberg on April 04, 2013 :
was engrossed in this story so quickly, I was unable to put it down. The characters spring to life so quickly you will find yourself immersed into their strange world within the first few pages. The writers discriptive ability will at times, have you on the edge of your seat. The fight scene with Merititi puts right there in the Ferassium rooting along with the crowd for her survival. The story builds up beautifully from chapter to chapter bringing all the characters to their destiny. This is an awesome trilogy. I will write my review for The Golden Scarab shortly as I read it straight after Ferrasium and I wait in anticipation for the release of the final book.

Fast paced this has you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. Kallie is an amazing heroine with a few surprises thrown in. This is the first of a trilogy - which is just as well because when I got to the end I wanted more.
