Jude arrived in Guelph, Ontario in 2018 after a lifetime and two careers (nursing and academia) in the UK. Although writing has always been part of her life the focus has been mainly academic but now her life has changed. She’s turned to fiction. She’s been inspired by a 2019 writing group initially hosted by Guelph Public Library and the wealth of good Canadian literature. She has a possible novella in the making and ideas for short stories and a “maybe one day” novel.
