JUDITH ROOK BIOGRAPHY (very brief)
Judith Rook was born in rural Yorkshire in the UK. Now she lives in Western Australia. The picture below is of Judith with a granddaughter, looking across the estuary in the small coastal city which is her home.
In her early years, Judith wrote whatever she felt like writing—stories, poems, plays, reflections. Then life intervened and her literary imagination went underground. For some time, she worked in education, radio, and wrote articles and reviews about music.
Towards the end of her working life, Judith began to write Science Fiction novels. She joined two writing groups, developed her technical skills and learned how to write stories for other people.
Science Fiction is Judith’s favourite reading genre, then come the great classics. Among her Sci-Fi authors are: Isaac Asimov, Ursula K. Le Guin, C.J. Cherryh, Arthur C. Clarke, Phillip K. Dick and Julian May. Judith also writes short stories, generally about ordinary Australian life.
From time to time Judith rallies around important social issues and has been known to take to the streets in support, so long as there are good cafés along the way.
