About Judythe

I am a storyteller, a wordsmith, a romantic.

I read a lot…adore Victoriana…collect tchotchkes…stockpile ephemera…and own up to being a native Texan, most of the time.

Ireland is my most favorite place on earth, and I’m crazy about all things Irish.

 I love these things…

Sitting on the porch.
Traveling back roads.
Meeting new people.
Gaining knowledge.
Sharing memories.
Walking my dogs.
Playing Pickleball.
Eating popcorn.
Watching movies and sipping wine with my husband.

Most of all, I enjoy weaving emotional stories with satisfying endings.

I’m an Air Force daughter and Army wife, a one time-Department of Army Civilian, mother/grandmother, antiques dealer, teacher, former mayor’s wife, and sometimes-church pianist.

I write full time–mostly romance (love those happy endings), some short stories, articles, and a bit of non-fiction stuff.

My husband and I live in a little unincorporated Texas town called Rose Hill with our four legged kiddos — Buster, a mouthy Maltese, and Finnegan Mac Cool, a giant-sized Old English sheepdog. They love running in our huge yard. Our hot, humid Texas summers, not so much.

View from the Front Porch is an eclectic blending of all of the things I love sprinkled with guest bloggers.

Thanks for visiting.  Stop by often.

  1. I can tell you are a passionate and colorful lady with many things to talk about. You paint a clear vision of your home and dogs, your mate, and your lovely life, and I can see it all! I look forward to coming back and reading your poems and stories. It’s great to connect with fellow bloggers that share a love for writing no matter what the subject.

    • Thank you, Laura. I’m so glad we found each other. Looking forward to tweets, FB comments and blogs from you, too. Thanks for stopping by the front porch and come by often.

  2. I’m so glad you decided to follow me on Twitter which brought me here. We have so much in common — reading, back roads, husbands we love to be with, Irish whatever, porches and swings — I can’t believe my good fortune at connecting with you. Oh, yes, I love to write too but mostly non-fiction, memoir type stuff. I’ll be around.

  3. I absolutely LOVE this! I can feel you in this post, Judy and it’s all thing good, just like you! Hugs from Georgetown!!
