Jude-Marie Green is a writer of genre (science fiction & fantasy, plus the occasional horror) fiction. She lives in Southern California amid palm trees, orange trees, avocado trees, roses, and birds. Lots of birds.
She is a fan of long standing. Her first convention was in 1977 at the Los Angeles Airport Marriott. She attends many conventions, including NorWesCon in Seattle where she is frequently a panelist and professional author as part of the Fairwood Writers Workshop.
A few years ago a friend challenged her to write a short story. She thought, “I can do that!” Twenty six revisions later, that story still hasn’t sold, but she is a much better writer. And has sold many other stories to online and print publications.
She discovered that most science fiction conventions these days have writers’ workshops, and she attended several while learning to write. She found the James Gunn writing workshop and Campbell Conference in Lawrence, Kansas, and participated several times. She attended the second Borderlands Bootcamp workshop in 2006. She went to the Rainforest Writers Workshop in 2009. In 2010, she was selected to attend Clarion West, in Seattle, Washington. She won the 2013 Speculative Literature Foundation’s Older Writers’ Grant. She organized the writing workshops for Potlatch Convention in 2014 in San Jose, 2015 in Seattle, and 2016 in San Jose again.
Jude-Marie Green has co-edited Abyss&Apex Online (with Wendy Delmater Thies,) Noctem Aeternus (with Michael Knost,) and 10Flash Quarterly (with K.C. Ball.)
