Wendy Vaughan has been writing and performing poetry since 1988 when she first performed at the first Pincher Creek Cowboy Poetry Gathering. Since then she has entertained with her poetry at various banquets, rodeos, fundraisers, and gatherings around Western Canada and in Montana.
Raised west of Cochrane in the Ghost River area, she experienced ranch life first hand. Many of her ranch experiences are related in poetic form in her first book.
Wendy currently resides with her husband, Walter, on the family farm North of Cochrane, Alberta where they still raise hay, but in 2006 dispersed their cattle operation. She has two married daughters and in 2007 became a grandmother for the first time.
She is a charter member of the Alberta Cowboy Poetry Association. She provided entertainers for the Bards and Beef Show in Crossfield, Alberta an annual fundraiser for the Westbrook 4-H from 1997 to 2008. Wendy is instrumental in the production of the ACPA’s annual Trail’s End Gatherings.
