Gillissen (Delft, 1969) has always been fascinated by dreams and the
graduating in Clinical Psychology, she specialized in dreamwork and
past life therapy.
She taught her first course in dreamwork in 1998.
The urge to write and her love for the world of castles, elves and
ghosts stem from the time she was five years old and her parents first
took her to the ancient hills of England, Scotland and Wales.
Inspired by a journey to the Greek island of Kefalonia in 2005, Wendy
began writing 'Curse of the Tahiéra'.
Initially, 'Curse of the Tahiéra' began life as a short story but when
Yldich walked into the tale of his own accord, it became clear Wendy had
something else on her hands altogether.
For months, Rom and Yldich kept her busy with their adventures,
springing scenes from the story on her at the oddest times, and soon it
felt as if she was actually sharing her house with them.

Alltough a little overwhelming, the process of writing proved amazingly
inspiring. As Wendy was completing 'Curse of the Tahiéra' ideas
for the sequel already came flooding in.
Currently Wendy is writing part two, 'The Search for Tzanáta', of what
will become a trilogy.
The Dutch edition of 'Curse of the Tahiéra' was published in the
Netherlands in December 2008. The English edition was published by
Booklocker in the
US in May 2009 and has since then won two awards.
In April 2007 Wendy became a member of OBOD, the Order of Bards, Ovates
and Druids. She currently takes the bardic course.
