Convictions to appear in 2016

Judith’s first Young Adult novel, Convictions, will be published by Coteau Books in Spring 2016.

Convictions takes readers on a voyage aboard an all female convict ship headed for Australia, in 1842. Fourteen-year old Jennie, convicted of stealing a sack of moldy oats, must come to terms with her new reality as she rubs shoulders with female convicts of all ages and occupations, and a handful of male guards as well.
