When the character of a boy lost in the forest presented itself to writer Wendy Altshuler, she was compelled to follow Christopher along his journey and deeper into the forest. In fact, she was just as surprised as Christopher when he encountered an awakened tree! The more she became immersed into the world of Evergreen, the more it snowed in our world--and snowed and snowed--until she was hunkered down in a blizzard, and the only thing to do was write. Five books later, she is still writing about the characters and lands connected by magic, interdimensional doors.
W Altshuler synthesizes backgrounds in writing, production, and theatre to combine myth and media in a new way. A Writers' Bootcamp alumna, Altshuler's credits include scriptwriting awards, green lit scripts and WGA-accredited representation. A Master's of Art Education graduate from Columbia's Teachers College, Altshuler documented the work of international choreographers, wrote and produced regional arts programming and stop motion animated shorts. Her short plays have been performed at Boston Playwrights' Theatre, regional schools and most recently, Puppet Showplace Theatre. Altshuler's young adult book series Evergreen is distributed through Amazon Books.
For me, art is about the places we want to portray, exist in or imagine - whether that be in visual art, literature, theatre or film.
