Judith Glynn became a dedicated writer when she chose a local college’s creative-writing class over belly dancing. Her first assignment – Confidence. That’s all You Need in Life – received a D. But her passion for the craft ignited an innate talent that has taken her on a successful writing journey for decades.

A freelance travel-writing life surfaced after a trip to Ireland produced numerous published articles. Spain captured Judith’s heart and a discerning writer’s eye focused on its local flavor. However, after hours in flight and new destinations produced only a nonchalant shrug, her notebook was closed to build a successful entrepreneurial career in New York City. But she still wrote because life wasn’t complete without a story – if only for herself.

Eventually, she wrote for the Web and tackled a novel. A Collector of Affections: Tales from a Woman’s Heart entwines fiction with travelers’ secrets and lively descriptions of Spain, Portugal, New York City and Rhode Island. Judith’s memoir, The Street or Me: A New York Story, is a riveting read about her encounter with a homeless woman in New York and their journey that returned the woman to her family in Italy. Today she writes anything from travel and general interest articles to narrative essays to helping others organize their words.

Judith has homes in New York City and Rhode Island. Her greatest joy is being a mother and grandmother.
