Judith Starkston Bio:

Judith Starkston has spent too much time reading about and exploring the remains of the ancient worlds of the Greeks and Hittites. Early on she went so far as to get two degrees in Classics from the University of California, Santa Cruz, and Cornell. She loves myths and telling stories. This has gradually gotten more and more out of hand. Her solution: to write fantasy set in the exotic worlds of the past. Fantasy and Magic in a Bronze Age World. Hand of Fire was a semi-finalist for the M.M. Bennett’s Award for Historical Fiction. Priestess of Ishana won the San Diego State University Conference Choice Award.

Judith has two grown children and lives in Arizona with her husband. Because writing is best done with community, Judith belongs to her local Desert Sleuths Chapter of Sisters in Crime, the Society of Southwestern Authors, and the Arizona chapter of the Historical Novel Society. Ms. Starkston is represented by Richard Curtis.

Writer On Writers

Did you know, The Phoenix Writers Club hosts a writers workshop after each monthly meeting?

We call it, Write On Writers (WOW), and we would enjoy seeing you there. Write On Writers is an unscripted, open forum where we discuss the craft of writing, share our current works in progress, and offer suggestions and ideas about each other's works. It is not a critique group, more of an open platform to give and receive ideas to help sharpen our skills and write better works. The group is not limited to one or two types of writing, but to ALL writing regardless of the topic or target audience. We hope you will join us, and look forward to hearing from all writers.

Be a Writer

What’s Involved?
Got an urge to write, but don’t know how to begin?

First, say these words, I am a writer! Out loud, I AM A WRITER!

Now go tell everyone you know and even strangers that you are a writer.

Once your writing muse hears you, there’s no turning back you’re hooked.

So roll up your sleeves, sharpen some pencils or turn on the computer, your job is to make those words come true so start writing and keep it going! Ah, now that’s the hard part. Writing takes courage, perseverance, determination, discipline, creativity and boldness.

We are here to help. Writers need writers.

DON’T delete this Web site, bookmark it when your first book is published, you’ll be glad you did!
