A really good suspense novel, hard to put down. There is just enough mystery, true “woman type friendship and caring” and romance to keep those pages turning. Totally entertaining! Don’t underestimate this book as a romance novel. This is a book that can be enjoyed by men, too. The characters include a daring young man, […]Read More
Welcome to the Official Site for Judy Nedry’s Emma Golden Mysteries
I’m so glad you found me. This is your site for news, information, progress on the series, accolades, opinions and rants (yes both Emma and her creator can be snarky at times), whines, and the sharing of important information. Let’s get to know each other better. Stick around and enjoy the ride, and please feel free to contact me by leaving comments on the blog page.
As an author, I love nothing more than to write. But once a book is published, it needs to be shared. Please pre-order your copy of The Man Who Wasn’t There, or catch up on Emma’s adventures in The Difficult Sister” or it’s prequel, “An Unholy Alliance” today. You can order ALL THREE at a discounted price. And, I will be happy to personally inscribe any books ordered here. As always, THANKS for your support.
The Reviews Are In!
What readers have to say about Emma Golden Mysteries.
I was unfamiliar with Judy Nedry’s writing when I downloaded her book from StoryCartel.com. After finishing “The Difficult Sister,” the first thing I did was go to Amazon and buy her first book, “An Unholy Alliance.” It was not necessary to read the first book before reading the second installment, which was another thing I […]Read More
I love reading books that are set in my general area! This cliff hanger mystery (set in the Bandon, Or. area) was no disappointment. I laughed many times at the cavalier style of the writer, Judy Nedry—felt like I was was hearing the story in person—right from her lips!! I was in suspense just as […]Read More
Emma Golden is a quiet foodie from Portlandia… until the chips are down, and her pal needs help. Then look out!! Emma’s kicking butt. She’s my new hero. This is a great mystery, a page-turner from the start. Set aside some time, you won’t be able to put it down. — Lloydo, Malo, WA Nov […]Read More
Do not judge a book by its set-up. Yes, there’s an almond croissant on page two, but “The Difficult Sister” isn’t all bakery shops, teas, and polite, innocent snooping … About two-dozen pages in, when the pair of women drive out to the single-wide trailer on Starvation Lane and start mixing it up with Aurora’s […]Read More

The Writer's Blog
Every writer has a journey that each of their characters must take.
OK, here I am in a cozy condo in Lake Oswego. I didn’t originally plan to transition so quickly, but here’s the deal. I’d wake up in one place with no underpants and go to bed in the other without a toothbrush. My life had become unmanageable. Plus, it made me sad to sit around the half-empty house […]Read More
So much has happened that I don’t know where to begin. So I will start with THE MAN WHO WASN’T THERE launch party at Annie Bloom’s Books last Wednesday night. How can I thank all of you enough? Tons of people attended, Tons of books were sold, and it was just so much fun! This […]Read More
There is no more trusty an old nugget than Thornton Wilder’s play Our Town. Many of us endured the reading of it in 8th or 9th grade. I don’t recall when I read it, but it was not easy going. Whatever your opinion of the play, it is likely based on ancient history. There is nothing […]Read More
Those who attend Artist Repertory Theatre’s season opener, The Understudy, will find themselves privy to the most misbegotten rehearsal in the history of theatre. This is no exaggeration. Three players playing two actors and a stage manager rehearsing a fictional Franz Kafka play. A theatre with a ghost in the machine. Absurdity. But isn’t that what Kafka’s all […]Read More
1928. It is the best of times–after Repeal and just before the stock market crash in 1929. Stock brokers are still regarded as respectable people; hemlines have gone up; social moors are changing faster than anyone can keep track. And an improbable mix of characters board a glamorous ocean liner bound for England from New York […]Read More
Since my last post, it’s gotten crazy around here. Some of you already know this, but I am in the process of selling my beloved home in Lower Hillsdale Heights. Emma gets to stay there but I don’t. I will be moving temporarily to a condo in Lake Oswego. This will give me time to […]Read More
Here is the latest on THE MAN WHO WASN’T THERE. In addition to being up on many of the e-book sites (amazon, barnes&noble, etc.), my new e-book has already garnered one very positive review. A milestone for sure! If you are not yet able to find the book on the site where you purchase your […]Read More
It’s been a wild couple weeks behind the scenes as The Man Who Wasn’t There approaches publication. As we speak, the e-book version has been sent to various outlets–Amazon, Barnes&Noble, and all the rest. If you use an e-reader, you will be able to get it any day now, just as soon as the gurus at these […]Read More
A few days ago I couldn’t even talk about it, and now it’s history. “It” is Anonymous Theatre‘s annual one-night-only performance, which was Monday night at the Gerding Theatre. As I blogged last week, I had the privilege of sitting in on an Anonymous rehearsal at an undisclosed location with a person whose name I […]Read More
