Judith Pettijohn McConnell
This weeks Author of the Week is Judith Pettijohn McConnell, this is rather a relief we finally got to do the interview! I think Judith and I chased each other all over email, lol. It was a huge joy to interview Judith and I hope you all enjoy her interview as well!
Hello Judith, how wonderful to finally get to interview! Let's start with you telling me a little about yourself.
I live in a Chicago suburb near my real estate broker daughter, son in law and grandchildren. My son and his wife live near Sacramento where he teaches first grade; especially teaches his students to love to write and they are good at it. I enjoy spending time with my friends, family, including my cousins; while not writing which is most of the time. I delve deeply into genealogy and play Scrabble whenever possible. I have actually played against myself when no opponent is available.
What got you into writing?
Okay, I started at age six, my handwriting evolved to print form now and wrote notes or verses on the inside of greeting cards to my Grandparents (as I lived with them). Mostly, because Hallmark doesn’t ever say what I want to say the way I want to say it.
That's so sweet. What’s the main thing you love and hate about writing?
Truly, love everything about writing. Marketing not so much.
