Wendy Jones Book and Novel

Wendy Jones - Author


Wendy Jones grew up in 1970’s suburbia, reading Mandy comic and eating Angel Delight for desert. Aged seven, she got a Brownie ‘Hostess’ Badge for which she set out a gold, wheeled trolley with a tea set and poured tea for the examiner.

Holidays were more productively spent at the ‘end of the world in the west of Wales’, playing in the undertaker’s workshop and paint shop that belonged to an uncle. It was a lot more fun than being good in suburbia and has provided ample material for her novels.

The first person to do an MA in Life Writing at UEA, Wendy has a PhD in Creative Writing from Goldsmiths, where she teaches. She wrote Portrait of an Artist as a Young Girl, a biography of Grayson Perry, and hosts the literary programme ‘Interesting Conversations’ on Resonance104.4fm. Film rights to The Thoughts and Happenings of Wilfred Price, Purveyor of Superior Funerals, the first in the Wilfred Price series, have been sold.
