Judy Frankel


Judy Frankel is a Master Gardener in California and the mother of a special needs child. Prior to the 2012 elections, Judy designed a website called Writeindependent.org to change the way candidates campaign for federal office and developed a strategy for removing the influence of big money on government.

A spirited entrepreneur, Frankel started several businesses over the past 30 years, including a bicycle messenger service, physical therapy clinic, and edible landscape company.

Frankel blogs extensively about political hot button topics such as fracking; war; rigged voting machines; voter suppression; and the Trans Pacific Partnership, a frightening trade bill. She became the first person in the USA to run presidential debates through Skype, which can be viewed on YouTube, Vimeo, and CNN’s iReport.

Concerned about the future of food, Frankel writes about GMO’s, Roundup (glyphosate) and “terminator” seeds. She pinpointed presidential appointees and political campaign contributions as the main causes of unhealthy agricultural policy.

Frankel speaks to audiences about food security, the effects of herbicides on our health, and sensible, effective political reforms. She is an activist with Wolf PAC, working to pass a 28th Amendment to overturn Citizens United v FEC.

Frankel has developed a large web presence with many YouTube videos related to both politics and agriculture. Arianna Huffington requested that she become a blogger for the Huffington Post.

With In Search of the Next POTUS: One Woman’s Quest to Fix Washington, Frankel hopes to focus political will by spreading vital information about current activist trends that are helping people feel more in control and exhilarated about the future.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up on a farm in Limerick, Pennsylvania. We lived so far away from any towns or shopping malls, that I had a lot of time to myself. My two older brothers didn't play with me, and my younger sister is six years younger, so we didn't enjoy the same things at the same time. Being on a farm forced me to be in nature when I wasn't inside writing stories about my imaginary law practice. I used to be a family law attorney and write out my clients' stories. I had several newspapers going at the same time: Colorful News, Headlines, and Phew Page (for the bathroom) for which I would write all the copy and draw all the cartoon illustrations.
What are you working on next?
My next book follows the Presidential campaign circuit. I hope to run into Hillary and whoever the Republican candidate is to see their sneers when they realize who I am.
