Wendy Crutcher
 
Wendy Crutcher’s first professional library job involved purchasing adult fiction for a rural Michigan library system. It was a job she fell into after earning a B.A. in history and a master’s degree in library science from SUNY Buffalo, and one she wasn’t entirely prepared for. The biggest hole in her popular fiction knowledge was romance, so she started reading, and quickly got hooked.

A materials evaluator for the OC Public Libraries system, Wendy is responsible for selecting and helping to maintain the adult fiction collections at thirty-three branches. She’s also the acting senior librarian at the Garden Grove Regional Branch.

In 2011, the Romance Writers of America honored her with their annual Librarian of the Year award. Wendy’s writing can be found at a variety of venues including ”Heroes & Heartbreakers” (http://www.heroesandheartbreakers.com), “Criminal Element” (http://www.criminalelement.com), “RT Book Reviews” (http://www.rtbookreviews.com) and in the forthcoming Greenwood/ABC-CLIO publication, Encyclopedia of Romance Fiction.
