Judith is the author of The Sacred Women’s Circle series, romantic fiction that honors spiritual practices that nourish the soul and celebrates the journey from relationship to romance.
Reinventing Ourselves is the chosen topic for our Sixth Blog-O-Versary here at Romancing The Genres. What started out as an idea Sarah and Judith talked about over tea at the Border’s Café just over 6 years ago has now developed into a world-wide blog focused on diversity of genre, geography and gender. Genre-istas come from Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom. They span across the United States and we write in most of the sub-genres of romance.
If you’ve followed us at all, you know our new look is Very Different from our initial one. There are similarities – books, a cup, and our name. We’ve changed our ‘tag line’ and after weeks of trying to figure out visuals to show visitors how diverse we are, Diana McCollum came up with the idea of language and Sarah Raplee did the research.
What did I contribute to this reinvention of RTG? Some initial brain storming and on-going feedback when asked on the new banner and format.
While Sarah and Diana worked on the new look, I tracked down alumni and invited them to guest with us. It has been a fun journey—catching up with former Genre-istas.

For me on a personal level, I’m reinventing myself every day as I find the balance between writing and my real life. I’m figuring out what I want to do myself, what I’m willing to do and what I’m l hiring out.
