Author Biography - Judy Astley
Judy Astley has been writing novels since 1990, following several years as a dressmaker, illustrator, painter and parent. Blowing It was inspired by her inability to be sensible with money. Being a high-maintenance blonde with a serious shopping habit (frocks, books, plants and music) uses up all potential pension-funds and Judy has unfortunately failed to make any plans for her own fast-approaching dotage except to request that her ashes be scattered in the Designers Guild fabric showroom. udy has two grown-up daughters and the world's best-ever grandson and lives with her equally profligate husband in SW London and Cornwall. or more information on Judy Astley and her books, see her website at www.judyastley.com
