girl with words

Welcome to girlwithwords! This is where I’ll showcase a lifetime of my love of words and share with you my latest books and literary adventures.

This is also a place where I will be networking with and supporting creatives, celebrating those ordinary extra-ordinary people in our community… and more. So please check out my Pages in this website and let’s connect and chat. Cheers, Wendyoh.

My first poetry anthology with a selection of poems and performance poems that I have written since I was just a kid.

“Wendy’s poems and spoken-word pieces trace her thoughts and feelings from a child, through teenage years, young adult years and the challenging, but wonderful, big adult years since.

“Her poems touch on the environment, her love for animals, the human race and relationships – positive and heartbreaking. There is always a sprinkling of optimism in her words.”

Beautifully illustrated and designed, this 132-page book is $29.95 RRP.

My first colour illustrated children’s book inspired by a poem I wrote in 1986.

“I wonder why that particular fly caught my eye as it did you?”

“Wendy takes children on a lyrical journey into the morning frolics of a particular fly – a fly with character and attitude.

“A very fun and educational book which kids – and adults – will enjoy.”

Vibrantly designed, this 30-page book is $19.95 RRP.

Having grown up on a sugar-cane farm on the Maroochy River, I am a born-n-bred Sunny Coaster! My 30-plus-year career as a journalist has allowed the “curious me” to ask many questions and write many positive stories. I worked in London for the Fleet Street newspapers in the late ‘80s, for Asia-Pacific region publications and spent many years as a journo and editor here on the Sunshine Coast and in Brisbane.
