Judy McConnell was born in Charleston, West Virginia and moved to Minnesota with her family in 1939. She became interested in writing at an early age, but didn't get around to writing a book until age 73. After graduating in Comparative Literature from the University of Southern California, she traveled and lived on the coasts for a while before marrying and taking up careers as a teacher, training specialist, and documentation writer. Divorced, she lives in active retirement in St. Louis Park and is the proud parent of two and grandparent of five.
She is a member of Compassionate Ocean Dharma Center.
