ABOUT

I’m Wendy Lyons Sunshine, an award-winning writer and editor who has helped experts write bestselling books, managed writing teams for NYC publishers and Dallas software firms, and contributed to dozens of magazines, newspapers, and websites.

My byline has appeared in mainstream media including The New York Times and Fort Worth Star-Telegram as well as specialty outlets including ScientificAmerican.com, ENA Connection, EndocrineWeb, and others. Nonprofit clients have included Mothers Against Drunk Driving, the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development, Texans Standing Tall, Audubon.com, and more.

After deadline, you’ll find me outdoors, trailing around after a 4-legged family member. To discuss editorial assignments, contact me. For noodling about dogs, public health, and sustainability, visit @family_wag.
