Judith Keim was born and raised in Elmira, New York, and now makes her home in Idaho with her husband and their long-haired dachshund, Winston, and other members of her family.
Growing up, books were always present being read, ready to go back to the library, or about to be discovered. Information from the books was shared in general conversation, giving all of us in the family a wealth of knowledge and a lot of imagination. Perhaps that is why I was drawn to the idea of writing stories early on. I particularly love to write novels about women who face unexpected challenges and meet them with strength.
A hybrid author who both has a publisher and who self-publishes, Ms. Keim writes heart-warming stories of strong women who face challenges and find love and happiness along the way. Her books are based, in part, on many of the places she's lived or visited and on the interesting people she's met, creating believable characters and realistic settings her many, loyal readers love.
Her readers are presently awaiting the 4th and final book in the Salty Key Inn series -FINDING FAMILY - which will be available for pre-order mid-August.
Her other three series - The Hartwell Women, The Beach House Hotel series, and the Fat Fridays series are filled with characters her readers love about the stories.
