In fourth grade, Judy's English instructor told her, 'You should be a writer." She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Creative Writing from the University of Arizona, and a Masters in Education from Argosy University. Over the last ten years she has appeared in several small press magazines and anthologies with her fantasy and science fiction short stories and poetry.
When not working on her fiction, Judy Goodwin works at a local college and also does technical writing as a consultant. She is proud to say that her daughter has the writing bug as well. They live in a house full of life in the form of three dogs and four cats.
