About Judythe

I am a storyteller, a wordsmith, a romantic.

I was an Air Force daughter then Army wife. I’m a mother of three and grandmother to twelve. I’ve been a Department of Army Civilian secretary to a general, antiques dealer, teacher, former mayor’s wife, and sometimes-church pianist.

I have three college degrees—Associate of Science, Bachelor (Magna Cum Laude), and Master of Education. I earned the first diploma fifteen years after high school graduation. Believe me, being a student while my three were also in school too offered lots of fun challenges, adventures, and misadventures.

I read a lot…love discovering new authors…adore Victoriana…collect tchotchkes…stockpile vintage postcards…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. That’s why Irish characters frequent my stories.

I write full time—mostly romance (love those happy endings), some short stories, articles, and a bit of non-fiction stuff. I also pen a weekly blog with my urban farmer daughter Chicken Wrangler Sara at “View from the Front Porch.”

My husband and I share a little house in a small, unincorporated Texas town called Rose Hill. Our mouthy-Maltese Buster and Finnegan Mac Cool, our Old English sheepdog, love running around in the big backyard or hopping in the car for trips to the weekly farmers’ market.

I love these things…

Hymn singing.
Porch sitting.
Traveling back roads.
Meeting new people.
Gaining knowledge.
Sharing memories.
Walking my dogs.
Playing Pickleball.
Eating popcorn.
Bingeing Netflix series with my husband.

Most of all, I enjoy weaving emotional stories with satisfying endings. Sign up for my free newsletter to keep up with my latest news and subscriber-only sneak peaks.

  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.

  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.
