Who: I’m Judythe Morgan. If you read Judy – the, no worries. It happens a lot. The spelling has been a blessing and a curse all my life. I live in a small Texas town with my hubby dear. We had our first date on my fifteenth birthday, and we’re still in love.
I’m a full-time writer, who pens sweet romances with military heroes (The PROMISES series) and preacher kids (Fitzpatrick Family series). I’m also published in women’s fiction romance (CLAIMING ANNIE’S HEART) and romantic suspense (SEEING CLEARLY). All are available in paperback and eBook.
Interests: My interests are many and varied. I’m an avid reader and binge viewer of movies and series on Netflix, Brit Box, and Amazon Prime. I garden, mostly flowers, though the deer often enjoy the tender budding morsels before they can bloom. I adore Old English sheepdogs. The bearlike gait and silly antics make me smile. Mine is big—95 pounds. That’s why we named him Finnegan MacCool after the legendary Giant’s Causeway figure, Fionn mac Cumhaill.
Network: I’ve been tutored and taught by so many outstanding editors and agents over my years. I hold those folks dear. I also work with the best-ever critique partners. I love the support and fellowship of like-minded people.
Desk description: Picture an oval pedestal dining table with a large screen monitor and a laptop and you’ll be looking at my desk. Guests now eat in our kitchen. No one seems to mind. Our kitchen is large and you’re closer to the food.
Outrageous talent or something fun like that: I adore Victoriana… collect tchotchkes… and stockpile ephemera from that era. I have hair receivers, figural napkin rings (which I use when folks come to dinner), a 1901 Northwood epergne, a basket of postcards from the early 1900s, and so much more. For years, I had an antique shop that focused on Victoriana. Hubby dear always said more stuff came home than went to the shop.
Window: What’s outside yours? From my front window, I see a 200-year-old oak tree that shades our little farmhouse yard. From the side window, which faces the driveway, I can see the red blooms on my Texas star hibiscus plant and a birdbath with yellow lantana circling the flower bed around it. Our house is a Certified Wildlife Habitat so squirrels, deer, and opossums wander through from time to time and birds gather for a cool dip at the birdbath or waterfall feature that’s in our back yard.
