About the Author
Wendy H. Jones grew up in the beautiful Scottish City of Dundee, Scotland. In a home full of books and with family who read extensively she developed a passion for reading early in life. Having read all the books in the local library by the age of ten, she entered into a spirited discussion with a librarian as to why she should be provided with an adult library card. Showing steely will, and determination, she won her battle and moved on to reading adult crime novels.
True to her adventurous side she joined the Royal Navy to undertake nurse training after leaving School. After six years in the Navy she joined the Army where she served for a further 17 years. This took her all over the world and fuelled her love for travel and visiting exotic lands. Postings to Hong Kong and Israel allowed her to travel extensively in the Far and Middle East.
Wendy is a committed Christian and is a member of City Church Dundee, part of the New Frontiers Organisation of Churches. She enjoys spending time with her family, especially her nieces, both of whom are excited at their aunt being a published author. She still loves to travel and explore exotic locations, as well as spending time exploring the UK.
As well as nursing Wendy also worked for many years in Academia. This led to publication in academic textbooks and journals which was the start of her writing journey.
She has now returned to Dundee where she is writing a series of Police Procedurals set in the City. These star Detective Inspector Shona McKenzie of the Tayside Police.
Books in the series:
The sixth book in the series, Killer’s Crypt is in the process of completion.
She also writes The Fergus and Flora Mysteries. The first book in the series is available now. The second book, The Haunted Broch, is currently in the process of completion.
