The Booklover Community Says Goodbye To Author Judi McCoy

It is with great sadness that we report that author Judi McCoy has passed away.

For the past decade, Judi has been an integral part of the booklover community as an outstanding author, mentor and teacher.

Judi's writing career began in 2001 with her fantasy novel I Dream of You. Her debut was followed closely by paranormal romance novel You're the One. Judi continued to publish fun paranormals and in 2009 she moved into the mystery genre with Hounding the Pavement. This novel started her Dog Walker series featuring the delightful amateur sleuth heroine Ellie Engleman.

However, Judi was much more than just a dynamic writer, she was also a terrific friend and dedicated teacher. For many years, Judi spearheaded the pre-con writers' program before the RT Booklovers Convention. A patient and talented mentor, Judi's bright spirit will be greatly missed.
