Fishers of Menace

Faith and Foils Cozy Mystery Series – Book #1


Welcome to Banford, where townsfolk are family, tea is hot, and murder is inevitable.

Cassie Bridgestone’s life is simple. Along with running her country décor shop, she loves to cuddle her cat, sip tea, attend church, and watch birds.

But then, things go awry.

First, the handsome but mysterious Daniel opens a bookstore in her building and challenges her to face long-buried feelings about her previous relationship.

Then, a friendly fishing tournament turns deadly and her friend is accused of murder, throwing Cassie’s world into a tailspin she might never recover from.

Unless she finds the real killer.

But the folks in Banford have secrets. Secrets they’ll do anything to protect, including bringing Cassie’s life to a quick and surreptitious end.

Hi! I’m Wendy, and I’m a inspirational cozy mystery author.

I write clean, lighthearted mysteries with a faith element. I find a lot of readers are looking for fun Murder She Wrote-type mysteries, without graphic violence or sex, so that’s what I provide.

My readers especially love the small town church community in my books – and cats. All my books include cats. 😸

Help Me Help Others…


It’s easy to forget what a blessing it is to live in North America, with all the wealth and freedom.

I believe one of the reasons God gave our nations so much, is so we can help the needy in other parts of the world. Nations where people walk three miles to get a bucket of dirty water. Nations where something as simple as diarrhea claims lives on a regular basis. Nations where the name of Jesus is unknown to most. 

Help me help others by supporting my work. A portion of my writing profits go to organizations that focus on bringing physical, emotional and spiritual hope to those who need it. Here are three of those organizations:

Gospel for Asia

World Hope
