Our second place winner, Judith, wrote the story Infatuation With A Total Jerk! and received some cash of her own!–$150. According to Judith, she started writing romantic poetry and fiction stories later in life, after spending several years with the true love of her life. She feels that by sharing true love, which she has with her husband, she’s always full of ideas and fodder for new stories. She’s been published in several magazines and one anthology. Writing about true love is important to her because she thinks that’s what makes the world go around. She belongs to a writer’s group and states she’ll be writing until the very end. She loves family, her cat, and friends. She leads a simple life, living in the country where it’s quiet and she lives to write about love.
As for winning the contest, “Thanks to everyone who entered the contest, and thanks to everyone who voted on their favorite story. We’ll be doing more great contests and giving out more free cash soon so make sure you keep your ears open and your stories coming!,” she said.
