2014 Book Festival Author
Wendy Webb

Wendy Webb is the bestselling and award-winning author of three novels of gothic suspense: The Tale of the Halcyon Crane (2010), The Fate of Mercy Alban (2013), and The Vanishing (2014). Her stories normally involve old mansions, long-buried family secrets, and strong heroines.

The Tale of the Halcyon Crane won the 2011 Minnesota Book Award for genre fiction. Her second novel, The Fate of Mercy Alban, was on the Indie Bestseller List. Both books were IndieNext and Midwest Connections Picks.

With The Vanishing, Webb returns to familiar territory, and Publishers Weekly praised this return: "Webb once again mines the secrets of an old mansion for an effective contemporary supernatural thriller."

Originally from Minneapolis, Webb now lives in Duluth, Minnesota, with her husband and their beloved Alaskan Malamute, Molly.
