Judy Mandel is a writer based in Connecticut. She is the author of the memoir Replacement Child.
Judy’s writing life began as a reporter. She later worked in public relations and advertising and somehow found herself in corporate communications at various insurance companies, where she earned a living for 20 years. Her memoir, Replacement Child, grew out of early essays and the promise she made to her family to tell the story.
Judy now balances her business writing for clients with writing fiction, nonfiction and articles. She has a wonderful son, and an incredible husband who brought three fantastic stepsons into her life. She also has a very large orange cat that sometimes types long lines of zzzzzz's by laying across her computer keyboard.
