To schedule Judy for an Author Visit, Book Signing, or

any type of Literacy Event, please email: 


Dear Teachers and Parents,

As we wrap up the 2023-24 school year, I want to thank everyone who not only read my books

with your children/classes, but those who invited me to come for school visits and literacy events.

I did 8  Author Visits this school year, meeting with more than 1,000 students!

Those times are a highlight for me as I adore chatting with the kids about reading, writing,

and history.  There is nothing like sharing your passion with those who are also passionate.

Enjoy your summer and I look forward to next year’s visits!
