Welcome to my website! I am excited about the release of my first mystery novel on April 1, 2011. Hera's Revenge: An Yvonne Suarez Travel Mystery is the result of many years work and learning about the craft of writing mysteries. I hope you will want to read it and enjoy traveling with my protagonist, Yvonne Suarez, to Greece and the Greek Islands as she reluctantly solves her first puzzle mystery. In my second novel, she will travel to Scotland and later novels will take her to other exotic destinations. Enjoy the trip!
In July of 2001, Wendy Dingwall moved from Fort Lauderdale, Florida to Boone, North Carolina bringing along her travel business of twelve years, Canterbury Cruises & Tours, which she blended with a new business, The Book Rack, a used bookstore serving the local community. When the bookstore closed in 2003, Dingwall overcame the adversity of the national economy and urban and regional planning and development challenges that had plagued her store, she phased-out her travel business, and gained employment with a regional book publisher finding the perfect fit for her sales and organizational skills. In July 2009, Dingwall launched her own publishing company, Canterbury House Publishing, Ltd.
Dingwall is a past president and strong supporter of the High Country Writers Association that meets twice monthly in Boone, North Carolina. A member of the High Country Writers Association since 2002, in early 2005 she helped to form a small critique group known as the Fellowship of the Rose. When she is not devoting herself to publish and promote fellow authors, Dingwall has since fulfilled a lifelong dream by finishing her first mystery novel, Hera's Revenge, a travel mystery. Hera's Revenge is the first in a series where Dingwall's love of travel, mystery, and story-telling melds and resonates.
Since starting in the publishing business, Dingwall has created an Author's Handbook for Marketing, has been a guest speaker on Marketing Authors and Their Books at High Country Writers, was a guest on two publishing industry panels at Cape Fear Crime Festival in 2006, and gave a dialogue workshop at the May We Write Conference in 2007.
She is currently working on the second novel in her Yvonne Suarez Travel Mystery series, and she continues to work on a family story about her mother.
