Judith St. George, who was born and raised in Westfield, New Jersey, had two childhood passions, sports and books. "In winter I skated on a local pond and sledded," she says. "The rest of the year I played tennis and softball. As for books, I read everything I could get my hands on, and still do."

After her graduation from Smith College, Judith married David St. George. They lived the following year in the historic Longfellow House in Cambridge, Massachusetts, which had been George Washington's headquarters during the first year of the American Revolution. Judith attributes much of her love of history, about which she writes with such authority, to that amazing experience.

When Judith writes a book, enthusiasm for her subject leads her to wear stout boots. She has traveled through the Great Plains and along the Lewis and Clark Trail, climbed to the top of Mt. Rushmore, and boarded a ship in the Panama Canal by climbing a thirty foot rope ladder. "People always comment on how hard the research must be, but I tell them that it's the research that's fun. I want to bring the people I write about alive for my readers the way they come alive for me, and experiencing where and how they lived helps me do that."

Judith and her husband live in Connecticut. They have four grown children and five grandchildren.
