Judy Bagshaw


Judy Bagshaw was a retired elementary school teacher and writer in Southern Ontario, Canada. As a plus-sized woman, she longed to see stories featuring full-figured central characters. Much of her work features such women leading rich and active lives, as she did.

Romantic suspense was her genre of choice, but she also wrote humor, some non-fiction, and children's stories. Her currently available works include several novels, work in multiple anthologies, and a short story collection. She was also part of the writing team for the Ginn Reading Steps from Pearson Educational, a program widely used in elementary schools.

Judy sadly passed away in 2015 but her legacy of size-positive romance novels lives on.
