Interview: Author ‘Wendy Wax’ Talks Her Great New Book My Ex-Best Friend’s Wedding

Prior to writing, Wendy worked in radio, television and film, most notably as writer, producer and host of The Home Front, which aired on PBS station across the country, and as the host of a Friday night radio show called Desperate & Dateless when she was both. The mother of a toddler and a newborn when she first decided to write, Wendy admits it may not have been the best timing in terms of productivity. “I’m still not certain why I felt so compelled to write my first novel at that particular time,” she says, “but that first book took forever.”

In addition to her Ten Beach Road titles, Best Beach Ever, One Good Thing, Sunshine Beach, The House on Mermaid Point, Ocean Beach, Ten Beach Road and novellas, Christmas at the Beach and A Bella Flora Christmas, she is also the author of A Week at the Lake, While We Were Watching Downton Abby, Magnolia Wednesdays, The Accidental Bestseller, Hostile Makeover, Leave it to Cleavage, Single in Suburbia, and 7 Days and 7 Nights. When not writing, Wendy visits with readers at bookstores and book events, reads, enjoys her and her husband’s newly empty nest and catches up with her sons on the serendipitous occasions when everyone ends up in the same place at the same time. Check out her website here, Twitter, and Facebook. The book is in stores Tuesday, May 14th from Berkley. You can listen to interview below.
