Wendy Roby

In 2013 I was the writer/researcher on Jamal Edward's Self Belief: The Vision, which was the first business book to go to #1 in the iBooks chart.

Previously I've written four non-fiction humour titles for Michael O'Mara. One of my books - Universally Challenged - was a Sunday Times Top Ten bestseller (above Stephen Fry, but below Carol McGiffin / some misery lit).

I've written features for various national publications like The Guardian, Mixmag and Dazed. My first break in journalism was in 2007, when was I was a runner-up in the The Guardian's Mary Stott Prize.

From 2008-2013 I was Singles Editor for Drowned In Sound, writing a weekly column of music reviews which are collated here. This means I have almost certainly listened to more middling indie rock than you.

I also mentor at a Rock School called Access to Music, teaching music business students how to promote themselves and stay sane as a freelancer. I think I'm Yoda. They would not agree.
