Judith A. Barrett lives in rural northern Florida with her husband, 2 dogs, 2 roosters, 50 hens, abundant wildlife, wild birds, and beautiful butterflies. She has named all of her chickens, and they answer to their names. To her husband’s amazement, she has not named all the wildlife, birds, and butterflies. Yet.
Her debut novel, THE GIRL WHO SAW CLOUDS, is a YA/Adult novel. It’s a story of survival and family. The main character, Aimee Louise, a fourteen-year-old with autism, sees revealing clouds in the place of faces and facial expressions. The story appeals to adults because it is a story of survival during difficult times of technology failure. Chilling.
THE GIRL WHO SAW CLOUDS was a Semi-Finalist in the Florida Writers Association 2018 Royal Palm Literary Award competition.
