About Judith B. Herman
Call me Judy. My name is spelled "Judith" but pronounced "Judy."
I am a freelance writer and artist based in Palos Verdes, California, where I love hiking in the canyons. Although we've traveled to Patagonia and Irian Jaya, our native California always draws my husband and me back.
As a former reference librarian at the Los Angeles Central Library, my research skills extend beyond Google. I write magazine and newspaper features, profiles and reviews with emphasis on art, language, travel and the environment. Switching from the verbal to the visual, I paint, collage, photograph and use the computer to distort the reality documented by my camera.
