Judy Carey Nevin

JUDY CAREY NEVIN twice received a fortune from a NYC 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 manages a library in Ohio, where she lives with her husband and their brilliant daughter.
