Wendy Webb knew from the minute she read A Wrinkle in Time at age eleven that she was destined to be a writer. After two decades as a journalist, writing for varied publications including USA Today, the Huffington Post, the Star Tribune, Midwest Living, and others, Wendy wrote her first novel, The Tale of Halcyon Crane. When it won the 2011 Minnesota Book Award for genre fiction, she started writing fiction full-time. Her second and third novels, The Fate of Mercy Alban and The Vanishing, established her as a leading suspense novelist, who reviewers are calling the Queen of the Northern Gothic. Wendy Webb is editor in chief of Duluth-Superior magazine. A journalist with two decades of experience.
Wendy divides her time between homes in Duluth and Minneapolis, and a cabin on the Gunflint Trail, which is on the border of Minnesota and Canada. She lives with her spouse, editorial photographer Steve Burmeister, and their Alaskan Malamute, Molly. Her son Ben is in college, where he is undoubtedly the most handsome and charming boy on campus.

"If Alice Hoffman had written The Shack, it would’ve turned out like The Secret of Lost Stones…an otherworldly, beautiful tale in which people who are grieving and lonely get the chance to find their way home. But will they take it?"
