International bestselling author Wendy Barnhart (formerly Terrien) received her first library card at age two, and a few years later started writing her own stories.

Her debut novel, The Rampart Guards (February 2016), earned a Kirkus starred review and was named to Kirkus Reviews’ Best Books of 2016. Next in her series are main character Jason’s book two - The League of Governors (August 2017), and developing character Sadie’s book two - The Clan Calling (August 2017). Both novels are award winners. Chronicle three in the series (and the fourth physical book) is The Forge of Bonds (February 2020).

Wendy graduated from the University of Utah (go Utes!) and relocated to Colorado where she completed her MBA at the University of Denver. She focused her marketing expertise on the financial and technology industries until a career coach stepped in and reminded Wendy of her passion for writing. Inspired, Wendy leaped and began attending writers’ conferences, workshops, and retreats, and the storytelling hasn’t stopped since.

She serves on the board of Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers, and is a member of Pikes Peak Writers, the Colorado Authors League, and the Authors Guild.

Wendy lives in the Denver area and is a proud dog mom. She’s team dark chocolate, a fan of technology, and believes every dose of nature nurtures the soul. Wendy is also committed to promoting pet adoption from rescues or shelters as the best way to bring home a furry family member. If you’re in Colorado, you may even spot her “Adopt a Shelter Pet” license plates.
