Judy Carey Nevin twice received a fortune from a New York City fortune cookie that read “You are a lover of words. You will someday write a book.” Judy never expected that fortune to come true, but she has unexpected inspirations that she just has to get on paper. Her sensibilities lean toward texts for the very young, especially preschool. Judy spent some of the best years of her career as an editor at Viking Children’s Books, where she specialized in picture books and easy-to-read books. Judy is a library director in Ohio, where she lives with her husband, daughter, and pooch.
