Judith was born and brought up in Norwich and now lives with her husband in Swindon. She wrote her first novel (now languishing in the back of a drawer somewhere) when her two children were toddlers but there was little time for writing when she returned to work teaching Geography in a large comprehensive and it was only after retirement that she was able to take it up again in earnest.
Judith's first two published novels, 'All in the Mind' and 'Watcher in the Shadows' each won the NAWG Award for Best Unpublished Novel for two years running.
