Gemini Judson


Gem is a biologist by training and an artist by heart. She's spent her career studying fish, birds, bugs and many other critters, all providing a colorful tapestry for her stories. She writes contemporary romances with varying degrees of heat, but the common thread is a natural setting or a scientific twist.

Her first love was painting and came to writing romances only recently. "The similarities in the process amaze me. When I write, I lay down a background wash first and gradually add form and structure, just like I would with a blank canvas. The last step is adding nuance and balance. There's nothing more satisfying than a finished manuscript and a finished painting."

She makes her home in Minnesota with her husband and daughter and a pile of cats and dogs and horses. When she's not writing or attending assorted youth sporting events, she's painting, on canvas or digitally.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Not really EVER, but I recall the first novel I wrote, with the intentions of publishing. Makes me blush to think of it... I was in college, and my creative writing instructor had a look of utter dismay when he handed it back after his review. I had paragraphs that gobbled up entire pages. I figure, hey - it worked for Nathaniel Hawthorne... The one thing I nailed, and he complemented me on, was my grammar. Yay me! AND, he said I could "turn a phrase". Wonder what that means...
What is your writing process?
Usually a clever title pops into my head. I'll be like "wow, that would make a great title..." Then I start thinking of a story to wrap around it. I'll pen out character sketches, a real skeletal outline, how the story will rise and fall, and the end. After that, I start writing and see how the nuances of each character start to unfold. I also make a cover pretty early on in the writing. This helps me immensely in getting a feel for the ultimate story.
