Moo Kow Press (in conjunction with FeedARead) released my fourth book of fiction in December 2017. It’s called ‘Wonders will never cease’; it concerns the experiences of Fergus Girvan, Senior Lecturer in Classics at Ariel University, during the Advent of 1985. He is an epicure, a womaniser, an egotist, a drunk – can you teach such an old dog new tricks? Does he want to learn them? And who would even want to try? To make matters worse, the man attempting to steal both Fergus’s research and his daughter may be even more reprehensible. If growing old disgracefully appeals to you, give this a try.
A first volume of my short fiction was released at the end of 2015. It's called 'Ice Cold Passion'. As I dislike most sport and am a committed atheist I surprised myself by including stories about both in the collection. In one instance, in the same story. Which all goes to show that a writer follows whatever muse turns up …
My novella called 'Little Mouse' is set in the same time line as my first novel and came out in 2014. Readers have been kind enough to describe it as 'gripping'. They all use that word. To the point where it's a bit spooky. But it's a good word to describe a short thriller, I am not complaining. In 2018 this book won The Georgina Hawtrey-Woore Award for adult fiction about which I am as pleased as Punch: 'that's the way to do it!'. (Make your own Punch and Judi jokes, why not?)
My first novel, called 'Is death really necessary?' came out in 2009. It is a thriller set in the near future involving the end of petrol-based transport, the beginning of immortality, a hectic pursuit using electric golf buggies, a Scottish castle, a smelly not-hero and a terminally-ill not-heroine.
I have a story in these Earlyworks anthologies (available from Amazon or, possibly more quickly, from Earlyworks Press): 'Pretty Words' in With Islands In Mind (2007) and 'Anno Canis' in The Road Unravelled (2007).
I blog spasmodically at judimoore.wordpress.com. As well as occasional puffs about my own writing, the blog contains reviews of indie fiction which I’ve prepared for Big Al & Pals, reviews of other fiction and poetry which I’ve enjoyed. The occasional theatre and music review, and the odd rant. The reviews I do for 'Big Al & Pals' go on my blog a couple of weeks after they go on Al's website. The reviews I wrote for Leighton Buzzard Observer on the chamber music concerts hosted by Leighton Buzzard Music Club between 2009 and 2015 are on there too.
On Facebook I post things that may be of interest to writers publicly. (Other material I share less widely).
I'm on Goodreads too, as a reader and an author.
