Wendy Van Camp is the writer behind No Wasted Ink. She makes her home in Southern California with her husband. Wendy enjoys travel, bicycling, and gourmet cooking. She is an avid science fiction and fantasy genre reader.
Wendy’s first career was being a teacher. She taught secondary school at Los Angeles Unified School District for five years. Her subjects ranged from English, History, Chemistry, and Math. However, her first love was always the television media.
Wendy produced televised city council meetings, parades and local church services for her community cable station. On her own, she developed a band showcase television program, producing and directing “Musician Discoveries” for five seasons. This was followed by a single season of “Coffeehouse Poetry”, a poetry reading television program. Wendy also worked in front of the camera as host of two local television series: “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 developed “Indigoskye Bead Fashions”, a small artisan jewelry business specializing in Celtic and Science Fiction themed jewelry to be sold at highland games, Celtic festivals, sci-fi conventions and jazz concerts. She continues to make jewelry today.
Currently, Wendy is active in several writing guilds: The Southern California Writers Association (SCWA), Coffeehouse Writers Group, OC Writers, and the Science Fiction & Fantasy Poetry Association (SFPA).
