Who are some of your favorite writers? Or the last book you have read?

Among my favorite writers are Lewis Carroll, T.H White, Lloyd Alexander, Susan Cooper, Mary Stewart, Frank Herbert, Robert Heinlein, Isaac Asimov, Dorothy Sayers, Charlotte MacLeod, and Dick Francis.

What would you like to improve with your writing?

Making some of my explanations/descriptions a bit more concise.

What genres do you tend to write? For example, paranormal romance, hard science fiction, etc.

Science Fiction, Fantasy, Adventure, Humor (in all categories), and Urban Fiction.

What is the best or worst piece of writing advice you've ever been given?

The best advice: stop using the word "just" unless it's part of a well-known phrase or used in dialogue, and then only occasionally.

When participating in small group discussions, do you more often listen or wait to speak?

Listen, but speak when I think I might have something helpful to say.


Hello, my name is Judy Colella. I've been published since 2008, and have written approximately 20 books of varying lengths, most of which are in the Science Fiction and Fantasy categories. I'm looking to publish a recently-completed novella.
