About the Author:

Judith Garber Eastwood’s most beloved memories of her childhood are the pleasure and experiences of reading, the treasured classics and the amazing realm of Make-believe. She would read to her “boogers” every night before tucking them into bed. J. G. has loved reading children’s books all of her life, attributing this delight to “helping me keep my little girl’s heart.”

Her passion for writing soon followed. She sat on a chair stacked with pillows at an old school master’s desk in her parent’s home, took scrap paper and pencil in hand, and wrote stories and scribbled drawings to illustrate her words, and vividly dreamed, secretively, of becoming a children’s author when she grew up. That dream became real when she observed her own young ones at play, and when she would read aloud to them.

Eastwood earned A.A. and B.A. degrees from Averett University and a M.Ed. from Lynchburg University. She is retired from teaching and has written numerous stories for children. The Dragon Trilogy is her first published work. She lives on a farm in Virginia with her husband. They have two daughters and three grandchildren.
