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 began as 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 left teaching to become a video professional. She 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 as an author. Her writing includes poetry, short stories, and novels, mainly in the science fiction genre. She has won Honorable Mention at the Writers of the Future Contest and is a graduate of the James Gunn Speculative Fiction Workshop. She belongs to several guilds: Broad Universe (BU), The Southern California Writers Association (SCWA), The Association of Science Fiction & Fantasy Artists (ASFA), and the Science Fiction & Fantasy Poetry Association (SFPA).
