Judy Fitzwater grew up an Air Force brat and has lived in ten states, including Maine and Hawaii. Her first mystery, DYING TO GET PUBLISHED, was plucked from a stack of unsolicited manuscripts at Ballantine Books. It was nominated for an Agatha Award for Best First Mystery. The subsequent eight-book series, THE JENNIFER MARSH MYSTERIES, was a delight for her to write, especially the scenes with Jennifer's quirky writers' group. Judy has also written two suspense thrillers, DROWNING IN AIR and NO SAFE PLACE, and the ghostly romantic comedy, VACATIONING WITH THE DEAD. She's very excited about her newest release, LOVE AFTER DEATH, which takes characters from both DYING AT HONEYMOON INN and VACATIONING WITH THE DEAD on new adventures. She has plans for more mystery, suspense, humor, and paranormal stories to come. She hopes you enjoy reading her books as much as she enjoys writing them.
