Judy Croome lives and writes in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Shortlisted in the African Writing Flash Fiction 2011 competition, Judy has numerous other short stories and poems published in journals and anthologies, both internationally and in South Africa. Some of Judy's short stories can be read free on-line in places as diverse as The Huffington Post's "Featured Fifty Fiction" series, and the University of Witwatersrand's School of Literature, Language and Media ITCH magazine. Judy's novel “Dancing in the Shadows of Love” and her debut poetry collection "a Lamp at Midday" are available from Amazon and other on-line stores.
A vegetarian, Judy loves cats, exploring the meaning of life, chocolate, cats, rainy days, ancient churches with their ancient graveyards, cats, meditation and solitude. Oh, and cats. Judy loves cats (who already appear to have discovered the meaning of life.)
Judy's reading tastes are eclectic; her reviews subjective.
