Wendy “Lizard Lady” and Mark

Assignment for the Eddie Adams Workshop XXXVI

Wendy lives in a barn in the Catskills with her husband Mark, two cats (Buster and Phoebe), pigs, lahms, chicken and five West Indian rock iguanas (Sebastian, Emo, Ava, Luna, and Che). Wendy has lived with lizards and other reptiles since she was eight.

When she was young, Wendy spent much of her childhood in rural Indiana, and learned to snorkel in the Bahamas. Wendy is a writer, and most of her writing is about our relationship with animals and nature.
