Judith Anne Labriola ("Judy") lives in Florida, but her home town is Burlington, New Jersey. She is divorced,
the mother of three grown children and is raising her youngest grandchild, who is seventeen years-old. Judy laughingly says,
"This is what keeps me young and still cooking!"
Although she has written all her life, the last eight years she has devoted all her time to writing poetry. Judy was a
member of the Poetry Forum of the Microsoft Network until it was discontinued several years ago, and also belonged to the
Poetry Forum of the Compuserve Network. She frequently posts in the Atlantic Monthly Poetry workshop, the Poet's Place Poetry
Forum, the Cage Unhitched, and has been published in several anthologies of import, one of which was '95 Windows, An Unofficial
Poetry Collection from the Microsoft Network, a commemorative book for the original Windows 95. In addition, her poetry has
appeared in various publications, both online and off.
Judy was also named finalist in two of the Poetry Contests sponsored by Blue Mountain Arts in 2000, and was selected as
a winner of a Poetry Contest held by Poet&Writer.Com in July of 2001 with her poem "The House on Union Street" which is
featured in her Poetry Index. She has been a featured poet on Potpourri Romance Online and also had a poem titled "The Day
Eve was Created" showcased by Fluid Ink Press, and is a featured poet at Burke's Hollow in their Writer's Showcase. At this
time, she is writing her first dramatic novel titled "Some Mockingbirds Don't Sing"
