Wendy Terrien & The Rampart Guards
Wendy Terrien has been writing stories since she was in grade school. Her debut novel The Rampart Guards, which received a starred review from Kirkus, is the first in her urban fantasy series.
Inspired by an episode of the television show "Bones" that suspected a killer to be a fabled chupacabra, Wendy was fascinated and dove into research about cryptozoology - the study of animals that may or may not exist, or cryptids. Pouring over stories, videos and photographs of creatures others had seen all over the world, Wendy developed her own story to share with middle grade, young adult and grown-up readers.
This episode includes Wendy's reading of the first chapter of The Rampart Guards.
