I’m an Australian writer. Not to be confused with Wendy ‘the Knife Coach’ Lewis, aesthetics consultant from New York; Wendy Lewis from Blackpool, considered by some to be the ‘most disgusting woman’ in Britain or Wendy Lewis aka Mrs Texas 1994.
I write for stage with a focus on musical theatre and absurdist comedy. Recent productions include the dark musical comedy Defeating Roger Federer (book, music and lyrics) Sydney Fringe Festival 2022, Lost in Translation (music by Yuval Halpern) BKA Theatre Berlin 2022 and The Devil’s Caress, Star of the Sea, Sydney 2018.
I write adult non-fiction specialising in history, biography and crime. My twelfth book, Please forgive us, Richard Hauptmann (2020), happens to be my first collection of short stories.
