Wendy Van Camp is the writer behind No Wasted Ink. She makes her home in Southern California with her husband and an australian shepard. Wendy enjoys travel, camping, bicycling, gourmet cooking and gemology.
Wendy’s educational background began in the television media. She was a cable television producer/director for many years producing televised city council meetings, parades and local church services for her community. She developed her own television series, producing and directing “Musician Discoveries”, a band showcase and interview program that was in production for five years and “Coffeehouse Poetry”, a poetry reading program that lasted for one season. Wendy was also the television host of two series of programs, “Flowers by Rod” and “Class Act”. Wendy’s corporate work includes directing in-house toy commercials at Mattel and general freelance duties with small independent Hollywood Producers.
After getting married, Wendy wanted to slow down and do less media related work. She developed “Indigoskye Bead Fashions”, a small artisan jewelry business. She specializes in celtic themed jewelry and sells at highland games, celtic festivals, sci-fi conventions and jazz concerts. During this time, Wendy started to write and publish articles about jewelry making.
In 2010, Wendy received her Certificate of Gemology – SCC and is now a certified gemologist. Her published writing has shifted from jewelry making to articles about the nature of stones, antique jewelry and art.
Currently, Wendy has published two short stories in literary magazines and is working on a steampunk science fiction trilogy.
