Judy Christenberry has been a published author since 1988 with her Regency book, The Notorius Widow.
Judy hasn't always been a writer, but she's always been a dreamer. As a child she often kept herself entertained while doing chores by making up elaborate stories – stories, she admits, in which she was always the heroine. Judy didn't actually start writing until she turned thirty-eight, the year after the heartbreak of her father's unexpected death.
Over time, it became apparent that there were two central themes dominating her writing: family and small-town life. In addition, many of her books have cowboy heroes – partly because she read all Zane Grey's romantic versions of the Old West as a teenager, and partly because of the influence of her parents, who both grew up on farms.
The last element that frequently appears in Judy's stories is a dash of humor – just enough to bring a smile to your face.
With a smile and a wink of her own, she says that she believes that laughter is good medicine . . . and it definitely makes a six-foot hunk even more attractive.
