Pender lives in Canada though she spent her childhood years in England.
An imaginative child, Pender wasn't a willing student and didn't learn to read until age nine when her father--deciding some incentive was needed--promised her a pony as soon as she could read a newspaper.
Properly motivated, Pender picked up a book and discovered the joys of fiction. Though her infatuation with ponies didn't last, she still loves a good story.
Pender always has several works in progress and spends all her free time trying to coax another story into shape.
