I was born and grew up in Canada, and emigrated to Australia in 1990. I've lived in a half-dozen other countries as well. My kitchen-sink bio runs like this: editor, translator, au pair, uni lecturer, fast-food prephand, artists' model, piano teacher, cleaner, library worker, slide cataloguer for an archeology dig, secretary, and lights technician for a really mediocre cover band in the 70s.
Lately I've been concentrating on fiction. I went to the first Clarion South in 2004. I'm still in recovery. When I'm in Sydney, I attend the sff writing group Thorbys, and by peripatetic accident et une très grande générosité de leur part, I belong to the online group Auteurs romands de l'imaginaire. I lurk at Broad Universe, and hang with the Codexians.
Most of my life, I've spent spinning words, in one way or another. Here's some links to give you an idea.... If you need more info, get in touch at wendy dot waring at gmail dot com.
I've also edited: anthologies By, For & About: Feminist Cultural Politics Women's Press, 1994. (This is a fine book, with lots of good pieces in it, even if I do say so myself...) and special issues "Weird Writing", Issue 31 of Fireweed: A Feminist Quarterly. Guest editors: Ann Decter; Martha Judge; Wendy Waring. Buy it here.
