Wendt

Fantasy writer and English teacher in Italy

About

Alexandra Wendt is a writer of adult fantasy, currently working on her next novel.

She has her bachelor's in Art History and English, as well as her master's in Italian Renaissance Art, which she completed during a year-long study in Florence. She has contributed to the site featuring women in the arts, Art She Says.

Alex is also a CELTA-certified teacher of English as a foreign language.

Alex would like to publish books inspired by her love for art history, Italy, and all things fantastical and mysterious. When she's not writing, she can be found feeding her obsession for Victorian literature or playing her flute.
