My name is Wenda Bien-Aime. I am a Florida native and of Haitian descent. I have one daughter, who writes apocalyptic fiction and a mother who songwrites.I am an advocate of mental health awareness, and aim to create stories to help end the stigma surrounding mental illness within the Black community.
I began my writing journey at the age of 11. I didn’t become serious about publishing until college, when my creative writing professor encouraged me to look into publishing a short sci-fi story I submitted for an assignment. She later asked to use my class paper as a model for that particular assignment for future classes.
I enjoy dabbling in different genres including science fiction, fantasy, contemporary fiction, poetry, and erotica. My erotic work can be found under pen name, Candy B. Vixen. My other work is under Bien-Aime Wenda. Although my first name is Wenda, I publish as Bien-Aime Wenda as an homage to my late father who had no male children to carry on his last name.
