About Judy (that’s me!)

Please come on in, have some coffee or tea, and learn a little bit about me. Not only am I an author, I’m also a chef, a mother of five (includes a four-legged daughter), and a grandmother of seven rather rambunctious grandchildren.

With over 30 years of writing under my belt, I invite you to take a peek at the list of selected publications and books I’ve written, largely mysteries and historical novels. I think and hope you’ll like at least some of them.

Pigface and the Perfect Dog (second in Oak Grove Mystery series) will be released on September 7, 2017. A dead body, rifle-carrying strangers in a grocery store, and a loveable puppy. These add up to trouble for Susan Hogan!

Businesswoman, busy mother of two, and a busybody-around-town… Officer Mike Shandy thinks she’s got a knack for getting into trouble!

Susan Hogan is a no-nonsense professor of English at the Oak Grove University in Texas. So how on earth did Dr. Hogan get tangled in murder and mayhem?!

Twins. An inheritance. A cafe. A bed & breakfast. Quirky characters. And of course, murders. Strained relationships, finger-pointing, and who-dun-it galore!
