Publishers Weekly gave Bitter Harvest a starred review! "Tyson’s first-rate second Greenhouse mystery (after 2016’s A Muddied Murder) stars big-city lawyer turned small-town organic farmer Megan Sawyer, a kind, intelligent, and spirited woman with great integrity. In short, she’s the sort of person cozy readers warm to and root for." Read the full review here.

Publishers Weekly has this to say about A Muddied Murder: "Tyson gives us an evocative sense of place, a bit of romance, and dimensional characters with interesting backstories. Readers are left looking forward to the next book in the series and hankering for organic mushroom tartlets." Read the full review here.
Fresh Fiction reviewed A Muddied Murder! "A Muddied Murder is a phenomenal start to what looks to be a promising mystery series. Wendy Tyson packs a lot into this mystery as we get well developed characters, excellent world building, and one darned good mystery! I look forward to seeing how Megan's organic farm and café fare in future books as I'm definitely cheering for their success!" Check out the full review.
Five stars from Examiner.com! Lynn Farris, Mystery Books Examiner, says, "I was anxious to read this book as I loved Wendy Tyson’s Allison Campbell Mystery series, which focused on an image consultant. The first book in that series, Killer Image, I listed as a best mystery for book clubs in 2014. I also included Wendy Tyson in my list of under-appreciated authors...While there are many reasons to recommend this book: a twisting plot, an interesting setting, outstanding descriptive writing, my favorite are the characters."

Thanks for stopping by . . .
Writers find inspiration in the most unlikely places - a faint smile, an odd turn of phrase, a boarded up old house tucked into the Alps on a hiking trail outside of Chamonix. It's hard to say what little spark will find its way into the deepest corners of the imagination and ignite a story.
I've been writing for a long time. You can find my short fiction in literary journals like KARAMU, Eclipse and Concho River Review, and while I have the utmost respect for the short story format, it's the novel I love. All that room to explore. I'm grateful to my teachers, those other novelists whose stories taught me that through fiction we are not simply entertained, but we can share what it means to be human.
For now, I'll continue here in my small corners of the world (Philadelphia and Vermont) and do my best to be open to the everyday wonders that can be nurtured and nudged into a novel. I'm working on the next book in the Allison Campbell series and the second book in the Greenhouse series, as well as a standalone thriller and some creative nonfiction. Dogs underfoot, coffee at my side, I hope to make my characters come alive for you.
