Welcome, Judy Ridgley, to Avalon Graphics’
Summer Ice Cream Social!!
[Cathy of Avalon Graphics] First things first – I have to ask what your
favorite ice cream flavor is:
[Judy] FATTENING AND HOMEMADE!
[Cathy of Avalon Graphics] Judy, please tell me a little bit about yourself!
Well, I have always loved horses. As a teenager I got Valjean and then a couple more American Saddlebreds over the years. I trained, showed and cared for them. Val and I won Reserve World Champion American Saddlebred Five Gaited Pleasure a thousand years ago. I then fell in love with Joe 43 years ago and traded my geldings in for a great stud who gave me two wonderful kids who I still ride even though they still try to buck me off. My first draft written was on King Arthur. I quickly learned he was not a king but a Celtic chief. I started running with Celts and ran smack dab into the Roman legions. And now I’m stuck in the ancient world and am loving it. I no longer have horses (miss ‘em but my daddy said if you can’t take care of them, you can’t have them) I can’t write and take care of my gardens now. And I love my stories. They keep me broke and outta trouble.
Just a few curious questions I’m putting to my guests
while we are enjoying our ice cream today:
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
WINTER/SORRENTO, ITALY / SUMMER LAKE DISTRICT, ENGLAND
GOD AND MY FRIENDS. LOVE YOU ALL!
What is your fondest memory?
AHHH SOO MANY. VALJEAN, FALLING IN LOVE WITH JOE, BIRTH OF MY KIDS AND MY FIRST PUBBED BOOK VOWS OF REVENGE.
What is your pet peeve and why?
Favorite book in the world?
How did we meet?
Judy, thank you so much for stopping by and sharing with us! It has been a true pleasure working with you and I cherish our new found friendship as well. We certainly share a lot of common interests – horses as well as those pesky Ancient Romans! Oh and Arthur, along with Dark Age Britain!! I look forward to our many long years of collaborations and shared joys together!
