Who Hi! I’m Judith Sterling, and my love of history and passion for the paranormal infuse everything I write. My two current series are The Novels of Ravenwood (medieval/time travel romance) and Guardians of Erin (young adult paranormal fantasy). My goal is to whisk readers far away from their troubles, particularly to the British Isles. My nonfiction books, written under Judith Marshall, have been translated into many languages. I have an MA in linguistics and a BA in history, with a minor in British Studies. Although born and raised in hotter-than-hot Florida, I got out as soon as I could and lived in England, Scotland, Sweden, Wisconsin, Virginia, and on the island of Nantucket. I now live in Salem, Massachusetts with my husband and our identical twin sons, and I work part-time as a tour guide at The Witch House, the 17th-century home of Jonathan Corwin, one of nine judges during the Salem Witch Trials of 1692.
Interests I love to travel, watch classic movies, and investigate the paranormal.
Network My family and friends are my support system, and I’ve met many wonderful authors through my publisher, The Wild Rose Press. As for social media, you can find me here:
Desk My desk is in an alcove of our dining room; basically, Grand Central Station. Now that my teenaged boys are home attending school online (thanks to COVID), I need to use super focus to stay on track.
Outrageous I can juggle, and I have perfect pitch. I’ve studied Swedish, German, Italian, French, Spanish, Hindi, Urdu, and Egyptian hieroglyphs. I love cold weather, and the sun is my nemesis. (See why I had to leave Florida?) I’ve also experienced the paranormal my entire life. And just to make things more outrageous…in my twenties, I was a member of MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) and worked as a volunteer for Professor John E. Mack, a Harvard professor who conducted research on alien abductions.
Window Out my window, I can see some of Salem’s historic homes: two from the 18th-century and two from the 19th. Because it’s winter at the moment, I also see the remnants of our last snowfall.
Return of the Raven
by Judith Sterling
Margaret, Lady Ravenwood, is trapped in a loveless marriage and firmly entrenched in the medieval world. Along comes Griffin Nightshade, a historian from the future whose soul resonates with hers. He persuades her to return with him to the 1950s, but heeding her heart means courting danger from a curse that could spell her doom.
Judith Sterling is an award-winning author whose love of history and passion for the paranormal infuse everything she writes. Whether penning medieval romance (The Novels of Ravenwood) or young adult paranormal fantasy (the Guardians of Erin series), her favorite themes include true love, destiny, time travel, healing, redemption, and finding the hidden magic which exists all around us. She loves to share that magic with readers and whisk them far away from their troubles, particularly to locations in the British Isles. Her nonfiction books, written under Judith Marshall, have been translated into multiple languages. She has an MA in linguistics and a BA in history, with a minor in British Studies. Born in that sauna called Florida, she craved cooler climes, and once the travel bug bit, she lived in England, Scotland, Sweden, Wisconsin, Virginia, and on the island of Nantucket. She currently lives in Salem, Massachusetts with her husband and their identical twin sons.
