Judy Leigh is the doyenne of the 'it's never too late' genre of women's fiction. Her protagonists are older women who prove that age is no barrier to getting the most out of life, or embarking on new adventures.
Judy's first two novels were published by Avon (HarperCollins), and she has now signed a 4-book contract with Boldwood Books, of which Five French Hens is the first.
Her work has been translated into eight languages to date.
After a career as a teacher of Theatre Studies Judy completed an M.A. in Professional Writing at Falmouth University and is now a full-time writer living in the rural South West, where many of her novels are set. She is also a passionate devotee of France - the setting of A Grand Old Time and Five French Hens - and loves to travel in her campervan (one of which appears in at least two of her novels).
