Judy is an Ohio transplant to Wilmington, North Carolina. She holds a bachelor's degree in journalism from Kent State University. She's been a newspaper reporter, a teacher, a temporary office worker, a customer service representative, and currently stay-at-home mom with way too much time on her hands. (And never mind the fact that her daughter is heading off to college soon.)

She started her first book Caviar Dreams, while her infant daughter was napping. Five years later it was finished. The biggest challenge arrived when daughter Aly, no longer taking naps, lost interest in watching the "Toy Story" video. A good babysitter solved that problem.

With the publication of Caviar Dreams, she went to work on a second novel, Tree Huggers, an environmental thriller set in Wilmington.

In April of 2012, Judy achieved her lifelong goal of appearing on the quiz show “Jeopardy!” She was a two day champion winning a total of $46,500 and the distinction of being officially named the smartest person in a room full of very smart people.

Besides writing, Judy is one of the masterminds behind the Cape Fear Crime Festival, a conference for mystery and thriller writers held every year at the New Hanover County Library. It's a great place for mystery writers to get together, talk about writing and marketing and, of course, plan the perfect crime.

The conference is especially welcoming to independent authors and the yet-to-be published. We all have to start somewhere.

Judy loves speaking to Book Clubs either in person or through Skype. Contact her by clicking here.
