Writing for Costco Connection has given me the opportunity to interview some truly fantastic authors, including Suzanne Collins, Jeanette Walls, Elizabeth Gilbert, and Annie Barrows. There’s nothing quite like interviewing fabulous storytellers—and then getting to write your own story about it.
“No matter what the assignment, Judi not only makes her deadline, but always delivers thorough and engaging text. She understands her audience and her editors; it’s a rare and treasured combination.”
— Stephanie Ponder, Editor, The Costco Connection
