Judith Nakken was raised on the South Dakota prairie in the 1940’s and ‘50’s (see her newly-published prize-winning memoir, Confessions of a Martian Schoolgirl.) She pursued a career in accounting and finance after receiving a few rejection slips in the late 1950’s and didn’t write for publication until she retired to the incomparable Tulalip Indian Reservation in NW Washington State at Y2K.

Judith credits her Storyhouse publications early in the new millennium as the impetus that fueled her writing frenzy. She now has five published books, has won a couple of small prizes and this nearly-major one for Confessions of a Martian Schoolgirl, (click here )to buy it at Amazon and paraphrases Robert Frost when she states “I have reams to write before I sleep.”   

Her story, Love Song With Hummingbirds, is an excerpt from her book Sweet Grass Season published by Imago Press in 2003. It earned a 5-star review from Midwest Book Review and is still available from Amazon or on order from your favorite bookstore.

Her most recent book is "Jacey Cameron in the Lost State of Franklin," which interweaves accurate historical facts with an exciting fictional adventure story.  You can purchase it here.

Judith lives on the Tulalip reservation with her soul mate, Dale, and an assortment of eccentric felines.
