About Judy Blundell
Judy Blundell is a New York Times bestselling author of more than one hundred books for children. In 2008 she won the National Book Award for Young People’s Literature for her novel, What I Saw and How I Lied. Her adult novel, The High Season, will be published by Random House in May 2018.
Blundell was born in Brooklyn and grew up in Queens, New York. After a series of jobs in fields that English majors know— waitressing, teaching, advertising, publishing, scrubbing laboratory glassware—she became a full-time writer. In her adult life she has lived in five states, several of them more than once, on both the East and West coasts. She has settled in Stony Brook, New York, where she lives within the sound of harbor foghorns with her husband and daughter.
