Wendy Babiak is the author of a book of poems she now disavows. Well, some of the poems she still likes, but the thrust of the book, and some of the poems in it, not so much. She used to consider herself a poet, but she’s currently in the process of discerning how best to use her God-given literary talents in His service, and she’s not entirely sure poetry is it.
Born Wendy Wragg in 1967 and raised in the Daytona Beach area, she received her BA in Creative Writing from the Writing Workshop at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida, in 1991. After graduation she married Brian Babiak and took his name. They’re currently launching a son and a daughter into this rather rotten world, which would be a greater source of anxiety if she didn’t leave it all in the Holy Mother’s hands. A certified Permaculture Designer, she conspires with her community in Ithaca, NY to establish a real economy that meets the needs of all participants, human and non-human. And as a Catholic revert and lay Carmelite consecrated to Christ through Mary, she seeks to be a conduit for God’s love and mercy.
