More About Judy

Author Judy Christie has had lunch at the White House with First Lady Nancy Reagan; met Neil Armstrong, the first person to walk on the moon; and ridden across a Southern city in a hot air balloon. She’s run marathons — 26.2 miles — in Alaska and at Disney World, been chased by a monkey on a city street, fished for piranha on the Amazon, and once got a black eye playing putt-putt at the beach. She’s always up for a good story and a good adventure. And no matter what she’s doing, Judy enjoys reading, writing, and talking about books.

Judy has had 18 books published, including three Southern small-town series and her “Hurry Less Worry Less” series on how to slow down and enjoy life more. An award-winning newspaper reporter and editor for 25 years, Judy co-authored the upcoming Before and After: Real-Life Stories of the Tennessee Children’s Home Society, interviewing adoptees who survived the orphanage that operated nefariously from 1925-1950. Her co-author on the Random House release is longtime writer friend Lisa Wingate, author of Before We Were Yours, international bestselling novel about the Tennessee Children’s Home Society.

Judy is married to a retired teacher and lives in rural Colorado — another adventure that inspires her writing projects.
