Manufacturer Description

A rowdy romp full of skullduggery and romance, Yonkheer takes place among the colonial Dutch who were so well depicted in the Tales of Washingon Irving. Based on real people and actual events, the struggles and feelings of the characters in Yonkheer seem modern, despite the fact they lived three and a half centuries ago.

Product Information

Meet Wendy Jane Henson

My passion for writing is equaled only by my love for drama. Publication of my first article in a national magazine and my first leading role in a high school play came when I was fifteen.

In college I mixed both with a bachelor's degree in theater arts and English. While I worked for twenty-three years in educational and civic theater, my articles and essays continued to be published. I also wrote plays, and a few were produced. But I knew it was extremely hard to write for film and television, so I avoided that. Until a certain story kept coming back from publishers with the note, “This doesn't work as a novel, but it would make a good movie.”

he story which back then didn't work as a novel was Yonkheer. Adapted as a screenplay, it went on to perform well in various competitions, became an award winner, and the die was cast.

I went back to school, earning a master's degree in screenwriting. Despite their interest in Yonkheer, producers rarely pay the high budget historical pieces require. So, despite being a warmly praised sample, the film was never made. Now it seems I sharpened my writing skills enough that Yonkheer has come full circle, becoming the narrative prose story I began with. I hope readers enjoy as much as I enjoyed writing it.
