About the Author
Wendy A. Simpson has been writing since the age of five after a family friend gave her an old typewriter, when she saw that she enjoyed creating works of mystery and suspense that only a five-year-old could. She completed her first novel and started shopping it at fourteen. In later years, she figured out mystery wasn't her thing. It was a story by Ray Bradbury that she enjoyed that turned her towards fantasy.

On a more personal note, she likes to think she is the world's biggest bibliophile. When she's not writing she indulges in her favorite pastimes which include working in her garden, and video gaming and streaming. Come see her on Twitch as Runic Nightshade.

'A grisly murder, a missing box, a dangerous task, and a cranky magical talisman. Expect betrayals, intrigue, peril, and romance in this smartly moving fantasy.'--Jacey Bedford, author of the Psi-Tech and Rowankind series
"W.A. Simpson begins with a simple tale of revenge and quickly weaves a grand adventure bound together with the threads of fairy tales and fey creations...where possessed staffs speak, wil-o-wisps roam, and Jack's giant vine protects the world both above and below."--Troy Carrol Bucher, author of Lies of Descent
"Simpson sticks the landing with an epic conclusion. Fans of Andrea Hairston's Master of Poisons and other secondary world fantasy will enjoy this expansive magical adventure."--Publishers Weekly
"This promising debut features strong world building and well-developed systems of magic. It will appeal to readers of Kacen Callender's Queen of the Conquered (2019), N.K. Jemisin's The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms (2010), and L. Penelope's Song of Blood and Stone (2018)."--Booklist
"Tinderbox is a riveting tale about personal strength and hidden magic."--Foreword Reviews
"Tinderbox is a refreshing read and [...] very well-paced and it's filled with wonderful descriptions. I also like the characters and the plot itself. One thing that I also love is the title which makes the book unique. I believe that readers who enjoy fantasy and adventure will enjoy this book."--Million Pages
