Judith Keim was born and raised in Elmira, New York, and now makes her home in Idaho with her husband and long-haired dachshund, Winston.
Growing up, books were always present - being read, ready to go back to the library or about to be discovered. Information from the books was shared in general conversation, giving all of us in the family a wealth of knowledge. Perhaps that is why I was drawn to the idea of writing stories early on. I love to write stories about women who rise to unexpected challenges and find love along the way.
As J.S. Keim I write books for children. I particularly love to write novels about kids who have interesting, fun, exciting experiences with creatures real and fantastical and characters who learn to see the world in a different way.
I have a story in Chicken Soup to Inspire a Woman's Soul an a story in Belle Book's Mossy Creek Series - A Summer in Mossy Creek. Some of my stories have finalled in RWA contests and three of my children's stories have been published in magazines - Highlights for Children, Jack and Jill and Children's Playmate.
