Portrait of Wendy Cheyette Lewison

Writing is special for Wendy Lewison because it lets her create something of her very own. She says that she has always been a writer. As a shy child, writing helped her to be her "real self." Also, it was during her childhood that she picked up her mother's love of words. That love of words has led her to write more than fifty children's books!


  • Wendy Lewison couldn't have pets when she was a child. Instead, she read a lot of books about dogs. She also kept her eye out for strays that she could care for.
  • Today, the author's family has two cats. Their names are Kitty and Pepper.
