    "As a child, I lived through my books," Wendy says. "The characters became as real as my friends at school. I could walk blindfolded through the rooms at Mistlethwaite Manor and I knew the feel of the heavy velvet draperies covering Colin’s mother’s portrait. The chalk dust itched in my nose as Anne did her penance at the blackboard. Stuffing rags in the old cracked stove at the Pepper household, I could almost feel the heat escaping. I delighted when the cheeky little beggar showed up in Sarah’s attic room and I wept in that other upstairs bedroom as Beth hovered close to death."

    There is something about the reading we do as children that stays with us forever. It’s one of the reasons the dolls Wendy creates are always so closely aligned with literature and the books she writes are steeped in sensory detail. Children’s books, dolls, and writing about her first love, the Lord Jesus, are what Wendy is all about.

    Wendy received the honor of a lifetime on January 18, 2004, when Wilmington College, located in New Castle, Delaware, presented her with an honorary Doctor of Arts and Letters degree at their winter graduation ceremonies. Dr. Lawton is only the eighth recipient of the honor at the private institution. The college president, Dr. Audrey Doberstein presented her with the traditional hood and tam along with a beautiful hand-lettered resolution that was read at graduation. It read, in part, “Whereas: Wendy Lawton, children’s author, has encouraged thousands of young readers to love reading and has positively influenced their lives by creating real life role models in her Daughters of the Faith books...”

    Besides working with dolls and books, Wendy loves to garden. Before she moved from her last garden, she counted over 200 rose bushes. She enjoys cooking and entertaining as well.

    Wendy has been married more than 35 years to her best friend, Keith. They are parents to three adult children — Rebecca, who is 29 years old; Patrick, who’s 23; and Rae Lynn who is almost 21 years old.
