Booking Author Visits & Book Club Events

Judith is always thrilled to speak with book clubs and other groups about her historical novels, in-depth research, and why she is drawn to truly obscure places and cultures in history. She also loves to share her passion for the creative process and all that she’s learned through leading and teaching at The Writers Circle. At her events and book talks, she will even include creative writing prompts and exercises to engage participants and listeners to discover their own creative voice.

To book Judith for an author event or workshop, contact Laura Marie PR or use the contact page for more information. Judith works with Adventures by the Book. Use this free service to arrange virtual and in-person author visits.

“I’ve never had an author bring a book to life the way that Judith did…. Judith is multi-talented — not only is she a gifted writer but she has a career that includes acting. The years of studying lines and parts and language allowed her to light an internal fire on her book like no one else could.

And for the people in the room, she brought a third dimension to the book solely through her words and expression and the ultimate love and intimacy that only she could have with this book.

It’s nights like these that I am able to say “this is why I do this” …

– Comments from the host of one of Judith’s book events
