Welcome! I’m Wendy Kennar — mother, wife, writer, former elementary school teacher, and woman living with an invisible disability.

In addition to links to my published personal essays, this website is also the home of “Wendy’s Weekly Words,” the blog I publish each Wednesday.

That may be a lot of W’s, but I primarily write about one of three B’s in my life:

Books (a writer must also be a reader)

Boys (namely my fifteen-year-old son)

Bodies (specifically my life with a rare autoimmune disease, an invisible disability)
