With a bachelor’s degree in journalism tucked in her purse, T.W. Fendley began her professional career in 1980 as managing editor of a small-town daily in southern Arkansas. Three years later, she returned to her hometown of Little Rock as a reporter for the statewide daily.
In 1986, she began a 20-year career in corporate communications that took her to New Orleans, Washington, D.C., and St. Louis. During those years, she held various positions that called upon her skills as a writer, photographer, editor, TV and radio spokesperson, communications consultant and manager.
While in New Orleans, the Crescent City Writers and George Alec Effinger’s science fiction workshop introduced her to fiction writing. She attended the 1997 Clarion Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Workshop. And then the REAL fun began! In 2007, she started writing fiction full-time. Her short story, Solar Lullaby, was published in November 2010, and her debut historical fantasy novel, ZERO TIME, was published by L&L Dreamspell in October 2011.
