The Frame-Up - Bookcover



What should you know about me? Let’s see….


  • I used to be the Anglophone Deputy Minister of the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development for the Government of New Brunswick.
  • I grew up in St. Stephen, a wonderful small town in New Brunswick, Canada. If you want to learn more about St. Stephen and  you especially want to go visit the chocolate factory there, click here.
  • I live in Fredericton New Brunswick. I have two children and a supportive husband. I may feed raccoons sometimes even though I know I shouldn’t.
  • It’s a Mystery, Pig Face! is my debut middle grade novel. I started writing when I was in elementary school, but I only got up the gumption to try and write full-time recently.
  • My second book, The Frame-Up, a middle grade fantasy set in the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, in Fredericton, New Brunswick Canada, will be published by Greenwillow Books, an imprint of Harper Collins, on June 5th, 2018.
  • I have an amazing literary agent, Lauren Galit of  the LKG Agency. If you want to learn more about LKG, click on ABOUT up on the main menu.  Lauren is very smart and very funny and I am lucky to have her!
  • How do you pronounce McLeod? McLeod rhymes with proud (and loud…)

 Press Kit:


Wendy lives in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada, and wrote her first novel at age nine. During her first career, she worked for the Government of New Brunswick, ending her career as the Deputy Minister of Education. She has been know to wander art galleries and have spirited conversations with the paintings – mostly in her head, though sometimes not. Her debut middle grade novel, It’s a Mystery, Pig Face! was published by Sky Pony Press in 2017. She can’t wait for The Frame-Up to come out so she can share her love of art and her love for the world-class  Beaverbrook Art Gallery. She hopes readers will be inspired to create their own masterpieces and visit their own local art gallery. And even better, she hopes they’ll come to Fredericton and visit the  Beaverbrook Art Gallery and meet Mona and the rest of the characters in the book (and maybe Wendy, too!)
