Judy Keim has loved stories and books from the time when, as a young girl, she played "Librarian” with her sister. She grew up in a household where books were very much a part of her life and family members told stories of the past. Listening to people tell their tales, wondering why people are the way they are, and caring about others worked together to help her dream up stories of her own from a young age – even if they were sometimes just in her mind.
Her children's stories have appeared in magazines, and in addition to her story in A Summer in Mossy Creek, an adult story of hers was published in Chicken Soup to Inspire a Woman's Soul (2004). Presently she's completed a six-book, middle-grade fantasy series and a trilogy of women's fiction novels about three contemporary women who help each other find their way amid chaos and confusion of very different lives. Her next book is a story of four women whose lives coincide when they meet for lunch.
She is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, Romance Writers of America, Georgia Romance Writers, and Southwest Florida Romance Writers. She lives in Atlanta with her husband Peter, much too far away from their children and two granddaughters, who live in Seattle.
