About Wendy Lyons Sunshine

Best-selling writer. Award-winning journalist. Trusted collaborator.

Sure, I enjoy telling a good story.

But I’m also skilled at digging into research, interviewing experts, and clarifying picky details. I can zero in on the information that’s important for your readers and accurately convey the big story and fine nuances.

My foundation comes from a BA with honors in English, phi beta kappa, from Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, and an MA in professional and technical communication from the University of North Texas.

During 25+ years of editorial experience, I’ve written for respected media outlets, managed and mentored writers, crafted proposals that garnered six-figure contracts, and collaborated on a best-selling book.

If you want to take your editorial project to the next level, let’s talk.
