Kiwi Judy L Mohr writes fantasy filled with adventure, dark monsters, humour and romance. Sometimes, the science fiction leaks in too, thanks to her PhD in Astronomy and Masters in Engineering. She is the president of the Christchurch Writer's Guild and a member of SpecFicNZ. She is also an active member of the Scribophile on-line writing community and is one of the NaNoWriMo co-Municipal Liaisons for her region.
Judy is also a freelance editor with Black Wolf Editorial Services, working on projects from writers around the world. She holds an editorial accreditation from OpenColleges Australia.
To throw a little more crazy into her life, because she can, she is also the host of an Internet radio show about science, Conversations in Science on KLRNRadio. She has always loved sharing her joy of science with the world and the radio show allows her to do just that.
Judy lives in Christchurch, New Zealand, where the view of the Southern Alps from her driveway and the view of the Port Hills from her kitchen window provides the inspiration for the settings to her stories. The time zone differences provides many different talking points with her international friends. When she is not writing, editing, recording audio or spending time with her husband and two teenage children, she can be found in her backyard looking through her telescope or in the New Zealand bush enjoying the world around her.
She has completed the final edits on the first novel in her first high fantasy series, entitled BEACON OF HOPE, but has elected to shelve her manuscript while she writes a stand alone. Eventually, she will start the hunt for that elusive agent and publishing contract. (You can find more information here.)
