About

Biography

Wendy MacNaughton is a NYT best-selling illustrator and graphic journalist based in San Francisco. Her books include Meanwhile in San Francisco, The City in its Own Words (Chronicle), Lost Cat: A True Story of Love, Desperation, and GPS Technology (Bloomsbury), Pen and Ink: Tattoos and the Stories Behind Them (Bloomsbury), The Essential Scratch and Sniff Guide to Becoming a Wine Expert (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), and most recently, The Essential Scratch & Sniff Guide to Becoming a Whiskey Know-It-All (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt)

Before she was drawing full-time, she studied art and social work, worked as a copywriter in advertising, a campaign director for non-profits, a bookseller in a used bookstore, and a counselor on a suicide hotline. She also created the national sensitization campaign for the first democratic elections in Rwanda. She lives in Potrero Hill with her partner (and frequent collaborator), the writer Caroline Paul, two cats and a dog.
