About Wendy Alexander

Wendy Alexander was born in Cape Town, South Africa. She spent the first 20 years of her life growing up in a culture segregated by racial discrimination and hatred. The experience in South Africa left her with many unanswered questions about human behaviour and human relations. Her passion for advocating cultural integration and diversity stemmed from her earlier experiences growing up in the era of Apartheid as a woman of colour.
One of the ways she coped with her challenging experiences in South Africa was to escape into the world of literature. She has been a keen writer since early childhood, mostly writing poetry about her life’s experiences.
Her first published book “Chocolate and Vanilla” combines her two passions – writing and promoting racial harmony and acceptance of cultural differences. In “Chocolate and Vanilla”, Wendy describes her struggle through racial hatred and discrimination. Her raw and often gritty tale gives the reader an insight into the very real pain she experienced in an environment tainted with bigotry, prejudice and hatred.
Her second book “Dances with my father” resulted from a 30-day writing sabbatical she undertook to come to terms with her father’s cancer diagnosis in 2010. It is a heart-warming tribute and tender account of a father-daughter relationship with all its challenges and triumphs, ultimately bonded in a deep and respectful love.
