Wendy Pratt was born in Scarborough, North Yorkshire in 1978. She now lives just outside Filey. She is a graduate of Hull University where she studied Biomedical science. Wendy works for the local NHS hospital as a Microbiologist. In the evenings she writes furtively and furiously out of her office (conservatory). She is also studying towards a BA in English literature with the Open University, because she didn't think she'd punished herself enough with the completion of her BSc.
