Welcome to My World
My world includes a huge clan of precious people, but if you’ve found your way to my website, this world is all about my desire to be a wordsmith woman who writes, grows and lives for God.
I have loved to write for as long as I can remember. My mother wrote, my kids write, my grandkids write. It’s just a part of us.
I enjoy penning both fiction and nonfiction, but my writing genre of choice is women’s fiction with inspirational romance elements. My heroes and heroines are strong men and women who turn tragedy into triumph with God’s help.
Thank you for your visit.
Stringing words together began with childhood diaries, poems and later with my high school newspaper and year book, pen pal letters, writing contests, academic writing and finally putting my hand to book writing. From age six, I read everything I could. Some of us are just knit together this way. A curse and a blessing, perhaps.
But, rather than a journalism degree, I have a Masters in Nursing. From childhood, I knew I wanted to be a nurse and spent many, enjoyable years in my career as a nurse, nursing professor and nurse practitioner. I’ve had the privilege of world-wide travel related to nursing.
After retirement, I decided it was time to return to my first love, writing. I have found I love all things writing, just about as much as I loved my life of nursing. A few years ago, I began to help friends with editing and now, am doing it professionally, along with my writing.
When not writing or editing, keeping up with my huge, blended-family of kids and grandkids is my privilege. I volunteer at church and in the community, but my best fun is serious, genealogy digging with two, wonderful cousins. Add long, nature walks, coffee, people, painting, travel, and a penchant for collecting rocks from places I visit, and, you know all about me!
Jude Urbanski is my pen name for Judy Martin-Urban.
