Biography

Wendy Tugwood was born and grew up in Fort Wayne, Indiana. She spent her childhood writing, reading, sewing and singing. Although she would have preferred to become a country singer/songwriter in Nashville, Tennessee ... at her very wise father’s insistence, she went to university and earned an accounting degree and, later, a masters in business administration.  As a result, she has established her career as a Chartered Professional Accountant ... but she never gave up on her dream to be a published poet.

Her debut picture book, I Love You Too, I Love You Three, illustrated by Sheila McGraw, to be published September 2016 by Firefly Books, is a love letter to her (then very young) children: Michael, Gabriel, and Rebecca. She lives in Alberta with her Canadian husband and three (now teenage) children.

Wendy enjoys giving dramatic readings from her book, with audience interaction (I love you too, 3, 4, 5 … all the way up to 10!).
