Judith W. Richards spent her career in the world of economics, finance, and real estate development. She is the author of Fundamentals of Development Finance: A Practitioner’s Guide (1983 by Praeger, later under Greenwood Press and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), which for over twenty years was a highly respected handbook for financing risky projects in urban areas and was also used as a text book at prestigious universities.

Now, the author has turned her sights to fiction and her first love, history. Judy has just completed the manuscript of an action-adventure, family saga set in Amsterdam in the latter 1500s, a period of tumult and extraordinary achievements. She is looking for an agent to represent it.

Judy currently lives in Nice, France, with her novelist husband D. Manning Richards. During their peripatetic lives, they have resided at various times in Sydney, Australia, and in Paris, France. Northern Virginia is their base.
