About the author

Wendy J. Dunn

Wendy J. Dunn is an award-winning author, playwright and poet obsessed by Anne Boleyn and Tudor History since childhood. She is the author of two Anne Boleyn 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, and The Light in the Labyrinth, her first young adult novel and two Katherine of Aragon novels, 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, the narrator of her first Tudor novel, serendipity of life now leaves her no longer wondering if she has been channelling 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 some of her ancestors – possibly over three generations – had purchased land from both the Boleyn and Wyatt families to build up their own holdings. That means 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. She is also writing her first full length Tudor biography, commissioned by Pen and Sword Books.
Born in Melbourne, Australia, Wendy is married and the mother of three sons and one daughter—named after a certain Tudor queen, surprisingly, not Anne. She is also the grandmother of two rather amazing small boys.
