Judie Freeland inherited her life-long enthusiasm for murder mysteries from her mother. Her daughters got her hooked on science fiction and fantasy. As a college English professor, Freeland published academic essays and books, and wrote bad poetry.
After retiring, she started writing novels, drawing on a host of students, colleagues, and administrators to create fictional killers, victims, and supporting characters.
Freeland raised golden retrievers for many years, so canine characters also populate her novels.
Try to Remember is available on Kindle. Dickens' Friends is Freeland's first Penstemon book.
