Judith Glynn never intended to become a dedicated writer when she chose a nighttime creative-writing class over belly dancing. She simply wanted a distraction from her disintegrating marriage. Her first assignment – Confidence. That’s all You Need in Life – received a D. But her passion for the craft ignited her soul and innate talent, enough to take her on a successful writing journey for three decades and counting.
Her travel-writing specialty surfaced after a trip to Ireland and subsequent publication in The Washington Post. That and numerous articles led to a five-year, monthly shopping column in The Chicago Sun Times and other newspapers. Spain eventually became a focus and where her discerning writer’s eye captured the local flavor. However, after hours logged in flight and new destinations produced only a nonchalant shrug, she closed her notebook to build a successful entrepreneurial career in New York City. But she still wrote because life wasn’t complete without writing a story – if only for herself.
When her need to write travel articles surfaced again, she hit the road to write for the Web. She also 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.
Her second book The Street or Me: A New York Story is a raw, riveting read about her encounter with a homeless woman in New York and their journey that returned the woman to her family in Italy.
Judith is a member of ARIA (Association of Rhode Island Authors). She has homes in New York City and Providence, Rhode Island. Her greatest joy is being a mother to four grown children and grandmother to six.
