Judy Christie creates Louisiana-themed novels, such as the Green series, which follows a big-city journalist who ends up leading a small-town newspaper in Green, Louisiana. Judy has kept a notebook since she was nine years old, and she still has all of them, thanks to a writing career that began when she was the editor of her elementary school newspaper. She is the author of the popular nonfiction Hurry Less Worry Less series, which is full of practical and encouraging ideas for busy people who want to slow down and appreciate each day more. Around her home in Stonewall, Louisiana, she enjoys porch swings, fried pies, and flea markets. She enjoys interacting with readers and writers, and she blogs at www.judychristie.com.
