Featured Author and Newest Member- Judi Getch Brodman
Welcome to AWB's newest member: Judi Getch Brodman!
Judi’s software consulting work has taken her all over the world even out to the Marshall Islands where she flew to work each day. Her bookshelves are filled with photographs and journals that capture her experiences and feed her imagination as she writes. But her roots and true inspiration come from New England, in the mountains of Vermont and by her childhood beaches of Wellfleet on Cape Cod.
In 2011, she began her writing journey with three published travel articles on Ireland, The Many Faces of Ireland, followed by a short story, Safe Harbor, published in July 2012. Then, inspired by the death of her sister in 2015, Judi wrote and published two children's books, Fiona - the Lighthouse Firefly and Fiona the Firefly - LOST! both titles available on Amazon, the proceeds of which feed a scholarship fund that Judi set up in her sister’s name. Scholarships are being awarded to students studying Business and Technology.
The Looking Glass Labyrinth
She's Not You
Do you have a bunch of nonrelated storylines floating around in your head? Write them down and then walk away. Let them settle in your brain until one (or more!) start to take on a life of their own. These plots might end up as individual stories or maybe your inner muse is telling you that they are all part of one story. Never waste a thought, character or narrative- you never know where they’ll lead you!
