Judy's personal writing is of a fantasy flair, filled with adventure, dark monsters, humour and romance. Science fiction leaks in too, thanks to her PhD in Astronomy and Masters in Engineering. She is published in Reflections, an anthology by the Christchurch Writers' Guild, and has several academic credits to her name. Judy is also a contributor to Putting Science into Fiction, to be published by Writer's Digest in 2018. She holds an editorial accreditation from OpenColleges Australia.

Judy is a member of the Christchurch Writers’ Guild, SpecFicNZ, and Romance Writers New Zealand. She is also one of the NaNoWriMo co-Municipal Liaisons for her region.

She in conversant in both US and UK English as her publications have been in both US- and Australian-based journals. Her fictional writing is primarily in US English.

To throw a little more crazy into her life, because she can, she is also the host of an Internet radio show about science, Conversations in Science, on KLRNRadio. She has always loved sharing her joy of science with the world and the radio show allows her to do just that.

When she is not writing, editing, recording audio or spending time with her husband and two teenage children, she can be found in her backyard looking through her telescope or in the New Zealand bush enjoying the world around her.

See her publications page for a list of her fictional and selected academic publications, and watch her blog for her other projects.
