Before becoming an author Judy worked as a psychiatric Occupational therapist. In her free time she became involved with the Special Arts, bringing the art of writing to the incarcerated, the severely disabled and children at risk. She moved on to the Milwaukee Art Museum as a docent, giving tours and interpreting works of art.
Judy has published poetry in several locations, winning the top prize in a Mensa poetry contest. Fifteen yeas ago she wrote and published her first book, English 422. She lives in Germantown with both her son and daughter near-by. And although her favorite activity for years was boogie boarding, seeing as she is turning 80 soon, she sadly left it behind for reading, writing and rock collecting.
