Judith has lived in Hampshire since she was a young child and is a well-known member of the community. She’s a lecturer at Winchester University for creative writing, and has appeared in the local press before from her time as a director of the Winchester Writers' Festival. She also used to have a column in the Hampshire Chronicle.

Birdeye is a novel about 67-year-old Liv who has lived a full life in the Catskill Mountains of upstate New York. Her twin daughters have grown up, she has survived breast cancer, and she is the founder of the Birdeye Colony that has welcomed numerous wanderers for over 40 years. Now Birdeye is well past its heyday, but Liv resists what others see as its inevitable collapse.

Birdeye shows us what the hippy dream looks like fifty years on, when the secrets which were masked by free spirit and a determined nonconformism force their way to the surface.
