Tori: What is your favorite book?
Judith: I have many favs and usually fall in love with whatever amazing title I happen to be reading. Take Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake, for example. I admired the book for its kick-ass cover, was intrigued by the back blurb and fell in love-at-first line: “The grease-slicked hair is a dead giveaway – no pun intended.” I knew I’d enjoy a character with that kind of dark humour and the rest of this modern-gothic ghost story didn’t disappoint.
Tori: Does your antagonist have a favorite pair of shoes?
Judith: Eryn prefers function to fashion, the whole chasing after beasties of the night thing is hell on high heels. She therefore leans toward flat-soled, canvas Mary Janes.
Tori: What’s your heroine’s favorite saying?
Judith: “Lovely.” Said in a dry, sarcastic tone.
Tori: Do you have a pre-writing ritual?
Judith: I write at the same time every day. 5:30am. It’s crazy-early, I know. But I do my best work when I’m in that bizarre zone, somewhere between dreams, reality, and just before the coffee really kicks in. I take the dogs out for a short walk (we have two Labrador retrievers) and our early morning encounters with deer, coyotes and the occasional bear helps spark creativity. There’s nothing like living on the edge of the forest for someone who writes about werewolves.
