Wendy Isdell

Wendy Isdell began writing her first book, A Gebra Named Al, when she was in the eighth grade. She entered the story in the Virginia Young Author’s Contest of 1989, where it won first place in the Rappahannock regional competition and went on to capture first place at the state level. She sent her story to Free Spirit Publishing in 1992, and it was published in 1993, when Wendy was a senior in high school.

Scientific and mathematical information contained in the book was gathered from several classes Wendy took over the years, including Advanced Physical Science and Algebra 1 and 2; advanced classes in Earth Science, Chemistry, Geometry, Trigonometry, and Analytical Geometry; and Advanced Placement Chemistry.


Wendy completed her bachelor's degree in Creative Studies in 1997 and has since begun working toward her master's. She fills her free time with classical guitar, friends, and of course, creative writing.
