Wendy MacGown

Wendy MacGown is a 30-plus-year veteran of the computer industry. Megabyte Rush, based on her experiences working at Honeywell and Wang Laboratories, is her gift to those lucky people who also lived through the 1980s minicomputer boom.

Her high tech career provides excellent fodder for her fertile imagination. Though technical writing is her profession, fiction is her passion. She calls herself a writer, and is as comfortable writing technical manuals for developers,     as she is crafting complex tales for the mass market.

Wendy’s first two novels, “Little Sister,” and its sequel “Big Sister,” deal with the complexities of adoption. Calling on her experience as an adoptive parent, she explores all facets of the adoption triangle, from the perspective of child, birth parent and adoptive parent.

“The Crystal Fishbowl” depicts domestic violence within the Baptist community of New England. In this novel, Wendy draws on her childhood experience of growing up Baptist to focus on the self-righteousness and hypocrisy that often results in violence and hatred toward women, especially preacher’s wives.

Wendy lives on the Boston’s North Shore with her two lovely daughters.

Awards

Both “Little Sister” and “The Crystal Fishbowl” won honorable mention at the Arizona Author’s Association’s 2005 Literary Contest.

“Little Sister” was also a finalist for ForWord Magazine’s 2006 Book of the Year contest.
