Author Wendy Goucher
After being a cyber security consultant for a number of years, Wendy Goucher now finds that she is often primarily recognised as the author of the Nettie in Cyberland series. This series was her first adventure in using stories to gently introduce cyber safety to very young children and their parents. Eesha and the Mud Monster Mystery comes from encouragement and feedback after taking the Nettie books into schools and talking to children – which is the best part of being an author. When she is not being a cyber professional or an author, she is probably engaged in sorting out who’s who and what’s what in her garden. Or she could be learning to ride a horse – that is a new hobby and one that takes a lot of her concentration. Wendy is a Fellow of the British Computer Society and was a finalist in the ‘Security Woman of the Year’ in Computing’s Excellency Awards of 2023.
