Judith Glynn has been hooked on writing travel articles for 25+ years. She began the ultimate journey published in newspaper travel sections nationwide where she was best known for her "Travel Buys" monthly shopping column. She also wrote general interest articles. But after many years of airports and steady travel, she closed her notebook to concentrate on running a Web-based, bed and breakfast reservation agency in New York City.
When the writing muse kept calling, Judith returned to travel writing but the industry had changed. She now writes for the Web. Spain is her favorite place. As for other destinations, Judith arrives with her curiosity tuned into its underbelly, adoring the local flavor. Although travel shopping is a favorite subject, Judith can handle most other subjects with ease, except sports. She's anxious to represent IFWTWA.
Her novel, "A Collector of Affections: Tales from a Woman's Heart," combines travel with romance for the middle-age couple. Her memoir, "The Street or Me: A New York Story" chronicles her encounter with a homeless woman and Judith's obsession to return her to her family in Italy, which she did.
Judith shares her time and life with New York City and Rhode Island where most of her family resides.
