This evening, for at least half an hour, my new book Wonders will never cease  made it into Amazon’s Kindle top 100 satirical novels (soixante neuf, since you ask) one ahead of Flann O’Brien’s The Third Policeman. Now that’s posh company to be in! It is a teeny tiny,  specialised, list I grant you – but my first.


Wonders will never cease


Lovely review of ‘Wonders will never cease’

February 6, 2018

Just seen a very positive review of ‘Wonders will never cease’ on Amazon. Thank you JC, whoever you are!

“A very enjoyable novel – especially if you have any inside knowledge of the workings of a certain unique university! Judi writes skilfully with great style. Reading this book led me read all her other Kindle-published output – it is all quite excellent! She has real talent and deserves to be widely read.”

here’s a link to the opus: Wonders will never cease!

Book review: ‘A murder on the Appian Way’ by Steven Saylor

November 21, 2017

This book was ‘givers’. Indeed, I cannot even remember who gave it to me. It has had a hard life, which it began in Poole library. Lord knows where it has been since then to get so tatty, but I shall put it on the shelf of treasured fiction and search out more by Mr Saylor.

This is book #5 in Saylor’s ‘Gordianus the Finder’ series. There are maybe as many as nine in all. This one came out 20 years ago.

It is beautifully researched, entwining what is known about the events described with fiction. The Romans wrote a lot of stuff down, so there is a considerable factual basis for the book, upon which Saylor has embroidered a story which canters along a path richly strewn with action, interesting information about this Roman period (52BC – Marc Antony is a young man), and wit.

Tightly plotted and economically told.

Great stuff.

In case there’s anyone alive who hasn’t heard me bang on about my books. Or you’ve been living in a cave in the Outer Hebrides for the past few years, here is a reprise. They are all available from AmazonUK and US, Waterstone’s online, fishpond, The Book Depository and, in the States, Barnes & Noble. I give the Amazon UK links to them, for simplicity.

Product DetailsLittle Mouse was published in 2014. It is a sort of prequel to Is death really necessary? in that it covers the tribulations the Goldstein family experienced during Kristallnacht in 1938, their flight to Edinburgh away from the Nazis, and what happens when the past follows them there.

Product DetailsA century later, in 2038, the Goldstein dynasty has created Gold’s Prosthetics, developers and manufacturers of marvellous prosthetics from arms, legs and eyes to lungs and intestines. The ultimate solution for diseased and worn out organs is contained in Nanonics. It can heal the terminally sick at a molecular level. But there is a terrorist who has found a way to use it to turn vital petrol supplies into molasses. This is the story of what happens when white nanonics meets black nanonics. Published in 2009.

Product DetailsA collection of some of my better short stories, published at the end of 2015.

People are capable of the most extraordinary things: even the sort of people one might imagine live cloistered lives in one way or another. Sometimes the extraordinary things we all experience lead to success – even to triumph; sometimes to disappointment – even disaster.

If you read any of them and enjoy them, please tell your friends – and please consider leaving a review on Goodreads and/or Amazon. Word of mouth and peer review is immensely important in the indie publishing world.

“Where did you get the idea from?

I’m a flitter and sipper: I pick up a sound bite here, a picture there, a quote from what’s in the news, a bit of interesting history, a dollop of current science, a snippet from my own life. I like my writing to be a rich stew of influences. For instance, I used to play a lot of golf.”

Another good review for ‘Little Mouse’

March 15, 2015

“This is a fabulous novella – a form that is much misunderstood, as it is neither a long short story nor a short novel, but something that has more in common with the unities, I think. It’s a compelling, very well-written, rather sad book, and one which asks in unified length what it means to be a family. It doesn’t necessarily answer that, but I don’t think we want answers. The only thing I didn’t like was the font – what is wrong with Times New Roman or similar? But the brilliant cover made up for that. Highly recommended.” (‘Boswell’ on

Little does Boswell know the anguished decision-making that led to the use of the font ‘Maiandra’! Let me know what YOU think of it.

A review of ‘Little Mouse’

March 9, 2015

“This little book is a really gripping read, the characters live as real and the situations appear real. Its a short read, so great for someone like me, as I am a slow reader, and I found it difficult to put it down. I wasn’t totally happy about the ending, but then I don’t think one is supposed to be. Its about real life, so often the purity of our intentions gets spoilt by the vicissitudes of life.” (Patricia McCarthy on
