About The Author

Wendy J. Dunn has been obsessed by Anne Boleyn and Tudor History since she was ten-years-old. She is the author of four Tudor novels: Dear Heart, How Like You This?, the winner of the 2003 Glyph Fiction Award and 2004 runner up in the Eric Hoffer Award for Commercial Fiction, The Light in the Labyrinth, her first young adult novel, and her award-winning Falling Pomegranate Seeds duology: The Duty of Daughters and All Manner of Things.


While she continues to have a very close and spooky relationship with Sir Thomas Wyatt, the elder, serendipity of life now leaves her no longer wondering if she has been channeling Anne Boleyn and Sir Tom for years in her writing, but considering the possibility of ancestral memory. Her family tree reveals the intriguing fact that her ancestors – possibly over three generations – had purchased land from both the Boleyn and Wyatt families to build up their own holdings. It seems very likely Wendy’s ancestors knew the Wyatts and Boleyns personally.


A long time tutor in the Writing Department at Swinburne University of Technology, Wendy now publishes all her novels under her own imprint, Poesy Quill Publishing. She’s currently writing a novel set in 2010. Of course, it includes a Tudor story. A poet and playwright as well as a fiction writer, she is also writing her first full length Tudor biography, commissioned by Pen and Sword.
