I’m Judith Ashley and I’m so glad you’ve stopped by. You might wonder how I came to be here and I’d love to tell you. I’m a Native Oregonian (not many of us around anymore) except for three months of my life when I lived in Ohio. I love the Pacific Northwest and while we have our high desert country, for the most part I’ve lived in the wet part of the state…so I’ve moss on my north-side.
While I’ve lived in the same state all my life, I’ve had a very eclectic work history. The common thread being I’ve always worked with people supporting them in having the best life possible given their circumstances. The second thread is education: from being a classroom teacher to showing clients more effective ways of living their lives.
Semi-retirement suits me because it gives me time to write something that I love instead of something required to get a paycheck. Well, in truth, to get those royalty checks – hmmm, don’t think I’ll go there. And that brings me back to why I’m here.Doing just about anything in a group is more fun…notice how much more quickly the house gets clean when everyone pitches in? Not that blogging is like housework ---it's really much more fun even when doing it alone.
But having a group of like-minded folks to share the journey is so much better. And, having those folks connected through writing Romance but with their own special twists and sub-genres is even more so.
The idea for Romancing the Genres came from having tea at Borders with fellow RTG founder, Sarah Raplee. We are thrilled to have nineteen other writers from nine states join us. Enjoy your time with us!
