A lifelong Connecticut resident, Judith K. Ivie has worked in public relations, advertising, sales promotion, the international tradeshow industry, and an assortment of not-for-profit venues. Along the way, Judi produced three nonfiction books, as well as numerous articles and essays. In 2006 Judi broadened her repertoire to include fiction, and the Kate Lawrence mystery series, set in central Connecticut, was launched. Whatever the genre, she strives to provide lively, entertaining reading that takes her readers away from their work and worries for a few hours, stimulates thought on a variety of contemporary issues-and gives them a laugh along the way. All Judith Ivie’s titles are also now available on at Amazon for Kindle and at Smashwords for the Barnes & Noble Nook e-reader. Judi loves to hear from readers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
