Jude Johnson has been a history enthusiast since childhood and has lectured about her historical research at the Sierra Vista Historical Society, the Welsh League of Arizona, and the West Coast Eisteddfod in Los Angeles. She is the author of the Dragon & Hawk series of historical novels set in the Arizona Territory that follow three fictional brothers from Wales from the copper mines of Bisbee to the gambling halls of Tombstone and the growing community of Tucson. Four years of historical research preceded the completion of the first novel. Dragon & Hawk is published by Champagne Books (http://www.champagnebooks.com) with Book Two, Out of Forgotten Ashes, set for ebook release on 02 April 2012, and Book Three, Dragon’s Legacy, scheduled for release in July 2012. She is a member of Gecko Gals Ink, LLC, a group of “sassy Tucson authors” who encourage other writers to become published by holding writing seminars and classes.
Jude attended Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania and Sherman College of Chiropractic in Spartanburg, South Carolina. She moved to Tucson after completing her education as a Chiropractic Physician and has been in continual practice since 1981, and plans to keep her day job for the foreseeable future. While she has no Welsh heritage in her lineage, she has studied Cymraeg—the Welsh Language—and learned just enough to be dangerous in Cardiff pubs.
She lives in the foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains with her long-suffering husband and son, who have resigned themselves to ingesting charred food while she’s in a writing frenzy. Website: http://jude-johnson.com
