While kicking ass working on television sets, Wendy has been a Warner Brothers Writers’ Workshop Participant, an ABC/Disney Writing Program Finalist, a Final Draft’s Big Break Contest Top-10 Finalist, a Women In Film: NY/Meryl Streep Writers Lab Finalist, twice an Austin Film Festival Second Rounder and in 2019, was named one of ISA’s Top-25 Screenwriters to Watch.

Wendy’s hottest feature script is the road picture comedy WHERE THE MEN ARE, which won Best Comedy Screenplay at both the 2019 Creative Screenwriting Awards and the 2018 Creative World Awards. Her keenest original pilot, HOMETOWN, a dramatic/sci-fi script won the ISA Fast Track VI Fellowship and the 2018 Space & Time Film Festival screenplay competition. Her most futurist post-apocalyptic pilot, ONE MORE DAY, won best screenplay award for the 2020 Space & Time Film Festival and the 2019 Sherman Oaks Film Festival. Her sexiest pilot, a half-hour dramedy script, COOZE, was a finalist for the 2020 Creative World Awards as well as the 2020 Seriesfest/Kyra Segdwick Big Swig contest. And her snappiest short script, INSIGNIFICANT, won Best Dark Comedy short screenplay at both the 2019 Houston Comedy Film Festival and the 2018 Austin Comedy Short Film Festival.

In 2015, the script for ONE MORE DAY was produced into a radio drama and currently has over 42,000 listens on YouTube.
