Together they have written and published five Tess Thompson novels and are working on their sixth. They also have a trilogy boxed set of the Chance O'Brien Mystery series. All their novels are available as eBooks in the Kindle Store.
Judi Thompson has been writing since her early teens. In school when the teacher assigned a term paper or report, the other students would groan, but Judi would rush home to begin her creation. She was rewarded for her efforts when her poetry was published in the high school magazine when she was a junior. “I’ve always carried stories around in my head imagining scenes and scenarios. I thought I was crazy until I read that one of my favorite authors did the same thing.”
Judi lives with her husband Roger in Houston, Texas. She is a retired supervisor for special education at a local school district.

Her published works include 9 novels, and the highly acclaimed nonfiction grammar eBook series Simple Steps to Sentence Sense.
