Judy Blundell - Author

Judy Blundell was awarded the prestigious National Book Award for her novel What I Saw and how I Lied, which was fantastically received by readers and reviewers in the US when it was first published in 2009. It's now available in six foreign language editions. This is her first novel under her real name of Judy Blundell and her first novel for teens.

Under the pen name Jude Watson, she is the author of several New York Times bestselling and award-winning series and media tie-in novels. She has written more than 100 books over 20 years, under various pen names.

Judy Blundell once dreamed of a girl sitting in a deserted lobby in Florida, and this image turned into the character of Evie in What I saw and How I Lied. She used many original source materials for research including a collection of newspapers her mother saved from December 1941 until the end of the war.
