Judith Ryan Hendricks Biography
Judith Ryan Hendricks was born in San Jose,
California, when the Santa Clara Valley was better known for its orchards than for computer chips. Armed with a degree in journalism, she worked as a journalist, copywriter,
computer instructor, travel agent, waitress and baker before turning to fiction
writing. Her experiences at the McGraw Street Bakery in Seattle became her first novel, Bread Alone.
A life-long infatuation with the Southwest was the inspiration for Isabels
Daughter, and her third novel, The Bakers Apprentice, is a sequel to
Bread Alone. Her fourth book, The Laws of Harmony, was published
in February, 2009; Hendricks fiction has been translated into 11
languages and distributed in more than 15 countries worldwide. She and her
husband Geoff now live in New Mexico.
