This time, my author spotlight is highlighting someone whom I got to ‘know’ through her Anything Goes Authors Group on Facebook. Since then, Jude and I have gotten to know one another through a mutual love of books, and my business, ‘The Pedantic Punctuator’ who has edited some of Jude’s work.
Jude is a wonderful human being, kind, caring and compassionate. She has a bit of a ‘thing’ for good looking guys with tattoos, and that ‘thing’ shows up in a number of her books.
Jude Ouvrard is an author who writes from the heart, and reads with passion and devotion. Jude enjoys stories of drama, true love, tattoos, and everything in between. While writing is her therapy, reading is her solace. Life doesn’t get better than books and chocolate, and maybe a little bit of shopping.
A romance lover, Jude writes about love, pain, heartbreak and matters that will challenge your heart. A book can tell an unexpected story, no matter which directions it takes. Jude embraces words that have haunted her for years.
Jude is a working mom who dedicates her time to a law firm and writing books. She has an energetic five-year old superhero son, and a supportive boyfriend of thirteen years. Her family is her rock; she could not survive without them. Born a country girl, she transformed into a city woman who now lives in Montreal, Canada. Although French is her first language, Jude decided to write in English because she liked the challenge.
Jude Ouvrard is the author of two novellas, Under the Sun and Wonderland, and three novels, “Lost Dreams,” “Body, Ink, and Soul,” and “Ophelia.” She is currently working on sequels to her novels.
