About me

Wendy Jennings’s book “From Cancer to Coddiwomple” is the story of living through her parents’ devastating illnesses and how she re-built her life, piece by piece, after losing them both, within weeks of each other.

Wendy knew exactly where she was going, why she was going and what she wanted to achieve, as she embarked on the trip of a lifetime, to Bali and Australia.

Little did she know that these two inspiring and beautiful places, would lead her to a totally different ‘destination’ – writing a book…this book! “From Cancer to Coddiwomple” is the perfect read for anyone who has ever lost a loved one.

Wendy’s book will support St Barnabas House hospice in Sussex, which looked after her family during the dark months and raise awareness of the often-missed signs and symptoms of Ovarian Cancer.

What my customers say…

Lovely true story

Well written, what a lovely true story with laughter love and heartbreak. Excellent read grips you from the start and holds you all the way.

Robert B, Tunbridge Wells,Kent

An amazing book…

It is an amazing book I could not put it down, although it is also very sad but to me it shows happiness can also come out of darkness and live every day to the full and take time to enjoy what is around you.

Tammy W – Orpington, Kent

Amazing journal…

A amazing journal filled with life changing experiences of losing parents within a short time. Wendy has a warmth that comes through as well as a fun side which in grief we suppress. It is a beautiful story and it is just sad it is a true story. This book also gives some insight into signs of cancer which can easily be ignored.

Cath M – Gravesend, Kent

…made me feel so relaxed.

I have just finished your beautiful book, haven’t been able to put it down! It made me laugh and cry at different points but it was a lovely read, it made me feel so relaxed.

Sharon A – Worthing, Sussex

Loved your book! The first half had me sniffling but the second half was a great laugh. So glad to know a bit more about you and your wonderful journey.

Five Stars! A+

Wendy absolutely loved the book. you write so honestly with humour and passion…..it filled me with all kinds of emotions from start to finish. I have passed it on to my Mum who is currently reading it. I’m hoping it will help and inspire her almost ten years on from losing my Dad. I will also be recommending it to patients in my carer support groups…..it shines with positivity and hope for the future. Congratulations on your success….it is so well deserved. You have helped me so much over the years to feel more positive about life, love and loss of loved ones, and I have rediscovered a wanderlust that was deeply buried. A must read indeed!  A*
