About Me

I grew up in South Dakota but lived in Australia, Ethiopia, Wyoming and California before moving to Mexico in 2001. I have had various careers as an English teacher, working in a television production company and as an artist on the arts and crafts circuit for 13 years. My avocations include being the curator of an art center and editing and co-editing two poetry journals. I am presently the coordinator of a local reading series at La Rueda (The Wheel) in San Juan Cosala, Jalisco, Mexico. My poetry appears in a few literary magazines and anthologies, and since moving to Mexico, I have written for several online and print English language newspapers and have published four books, all available on Amazon in print and Kindle versions. Four more children’s books are completed and awaiting illustrations. My blog postings include my poetry, photographs, essays and stories. Other pages include information about and links to my books.

Thanks for dropping by my blog. I hope to see you here often. Please post a comment to let me know who you are and what you think about what you are reading!

    Hi Judy! I tried to follow you twice this morning, but wordpress said my email was invalid. LOL. Well, I want to thank you for reading Bull’s Blood” Chapter 3. It’s not an easy novel….but the female character pulls the supporting pins out from under the Man. LOL. Some are turned off by the beginning theme, but that ends….Thank you, Judy for reading…and I am especially interested in your life lessons. Bless you.

      hi Perry. Did we know this about each other when we were in La Manz? I was in Nairobi and Mombasa in ’67 and again in ’73. I’m not coming to La Manzanilla this year. Staying home and writing my book. On Ethiopia!
