An information systems nerd for twenty-plus years, Judith is a survivor of Dilbert-like re-engineering projects, 3:00 a.m. computer crashes and the Millennium Bug. In her writing, she likes to show technology’s humor and quirkiness along with its really scary aspects. Occasionally Judith takes a vacation that spins off into a novel. Festival Madness arrived after multiple trips to the Burning Man Festival and years of observing high-tech hi-jinx. World of Mirrors was born when Judith and her husband visited the Baltic island of Rugen shortly after the reunification of East and West Germany Judith is a member of Sisters in Crime, Mystery Writers of America, and Toastmasters International. She has published poems, short stories and memoir as well as an earlier novel, The Shadow Warriors.
