Her early life….
She was born in Livingston, New Jersey. Mass’s favorite subjects in school were reading and writing. Wendy worked at town libraries and ghostwrote her friend’s college applications. As a child she would compete with friends to see who could read the most books; this helped her develop her writing skills. Mass’s first story, co-written by her 2 siblings when she was in Jr. High, starred a pet that somehow turned into a goat and destroyed the neighborhood. In high school, Mass worked at local public libraries and continued to hone her writing skills. She took writing classes and decided writing for her career.

Mass currently lives in Sparta Township, New Jersey, with her twins Griffin and Chloe, her husband Mike, and her cat Zoey.
