Links to Writing & Marketing Blog Posts PLUS Part 2 of an Interview with Author Judith Natelli McLaughlin

This is the second part of a two-part series with author Judith Natelli McLaughlin.

In a recent article in the South Mountain, she was asked about her writing, which runs the gamut from poetry to novels. 

Judy's favorite projects to work on include children’s literature. 

As the author of Poems on Fruits & Odes to Veggies – Where Healthy Eating Starts With a Poem, Judy enjoys sharing the story by visiting schools and libraries and reading to children, encouraging healthy eating habits and making connections with kids.

Judy’s first published novel and her biggest accomplishment to date is This Moment, a contemporary love story. The book is an important testament to persistence and believing in your dreams.

She actually wrote the book ten years prior to it being published. When a publishing deal fell through, she tucked the book into a drawer until last year when she indie-published. Judy’s advice for aspiring writers is, “Write every single day and continue to practice your craft. Never give up!”

Judy’s hobbies include biking, going to the beach and painting with watercolors. She is a graduate of Villanova University with a B.A. in English, and has lived in South Mountain for twenty years with her husband Brian and three daughters.
