Shafer Winery in Napa

Wine-tasting… one of my favorite things!

A few facts about me:

  • I am an ARAMCO Brat – I was born and raised in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia.
  • I have lived in Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, Australia, California, Florida, Tennessee and Georgia.
  • I love music, traveling, tennis, golf, boating and skiing (not necessarily in that order).
  • I learned to read at age 4.
  • For my last meal on earth, I want Spaghetti Arrabiata, loaded with chilis.

  • I have always wanted to be a writer.

    Hey Wendi, I am so happy to see that you are doing well. Congratulations on your new book!! I often wondered how you were and what you were doing. I just recently contacted Kelley but have not talked to her by phone yet. We will have to catch up sometime soon if you have a few minutes. Again, I am really happy to see that life is treating tou well. You can reach me via e-mail at the following:


    Take care,



  2. Love the golf picture! Thanks for following my blog šŸ™‚


  3. Hey there! I really like reading your blog, and I have nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blog Award! Click the link to take a look!



  4. Nice to meet you….happy that you found my blog and that I found yours! Would love some of your Thai recipes…i adore Thai food!


  5. I may post one or two eventually, but I will tell you flat out- when I really need a fix, I go out to eat! I just can’t replicate that authentic Thai taste! šŸ˜¦
    And Allie, thanks for the nomination!


  6. Wow… Wendi… this is one of the shortest bio I ever read and same time one of the deepest I ever felt. May be will sound weird for a first contact but… would you honor me accepting to interview you? šŸ™‚
    By the way… nice to meet you!


  7. Sure MC, any time! šŸ™‚ And nice to meet you, too!


  8. Thanks a lot šŸ™‚

    Seems that I can’t find a private contact here, so can you send me an email, please?
    Just to know where I will send you the questions for the interview.
    Give me… lets say two weeks to make my homework… meaning to deeply dig šŸ™‚

    My email address is: mcsimon@mcsimonwrites.com


  9. Hello Wendi,
    I just found your blog via your Amazon reviewer profile! I was initially planning to send you a review request because I see you like reading mystery/suspense. Now after reading more about you I think my novel would be of even more interest to you as it is set in Dubai and Saudi Arabia. I am a Canadian author living in Thailand but spent four years in Dubai prior to our move here. My latest novel, Deep Deceit just launched in March and I’ve been on a virtual book tour since. If you think you’d be interested, please send me an email at anne@globalwritingsolutions.com and I’d be happy to send you a review copy.
    Happy writing!
