Wendy K. Webb is an American fiction author. Her books have received several awards, including the Minnesota Book Award for fiction in 2011 and 2017.

Webb was born and raised in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, a suburb of Minneapolis. When Webb was in grade school, the school librarian encouraged her to read A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle. After reading that book, she knew from that point on that she was destined to be an author.

Immediately after graduation, she lived in France with two of her friends. Upon returning to the United States, she got an internship in Washington, D.C. with a congressman, and later with a Minnesota senator.

After returning to Minnesota, Webb got her first writing job with a Minneapolis-based weekly arts and entertainment newsletter, City Pages. Webb has also written for as the Huffington Post and USA Today. She was the editor-in-chief of a lifestyle monthly, Duluth Superior Magazine, until the publication closed in 2014.

Webb's first novel, The Tale of Halcyon Crane, is a modern ghost story that won the Minnesota Book Award for fiction in 2011. Her second novel, The Fate of Mercy Alban, depicts the uncovering of a hidden family scandal. The book was on the Indie Bestseller List for six weeks.
