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.

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.
Thanksgiving is the perfect day for hanging out and taking stock. I am not doing dinner this year. Wynne took over, and has been directing the show. I imagine we’ll be dining later on one of her brined turkeys. The one she made last Christmas was the best turkey I have ever eaten, so I […]Read More
Being a heart-throb matinee idol is a tough job for anyone, and only the strongest survive the constant adoration of women, as actor Garry Essendine (Gary Powell) can attest in Noel Coward’s Present Laughter, now playing at Lakewood Theatre through December 13. The play opens with the very young Daphne Stillington (Brenan Dwyer), clad in a man’s […]Read More
Last Thursday the move from my home in Lower Hillsdale Heights was accomplished–something I’d been building toward since late last August when I realized it was time to sell and picked up the phone. Although it has been arduous, and seemingly endless, things actually moved quickly. There was the cleaning things out for staging, cleaning things […]Read More
Three names: John Biguenet, Vana O’Brien, Gemma Whelan. Throw them into the boiling pot, stir with eye of newt, and presto! It’s Broomstick, a tour de force one-woman show that runs at Artists Repertory Theatre through November 22. Playwright John Biguenet is creator of Broomstick. A New Orleans native, Biguenet is perhaps best known for […]Read More
Portland Center Stage’s new show, Ain’t Misbehavin’, barely gives the audience a moment to catch its breath. This fast-paced and colorful production is a musical review of the songs of Thomas “Fats” Waller–a child of the Harlem Renaissance who embraced the era where he came of age, prolifically wrote music about life in Harlem, played in all […]Read More
The seed of an idea was sown as Rebecca and I were driving to Spokane last Friday. We were just north of Kennewick when we passed a tow truck. It was white with pink trim and a banner painted across the back of the cab that read “Towing for Tatas”. There were those little pink […]Read More
If you’re like me, wondering whether you should attend Portland Center Stage’s most recent production, the Laura Eason play Sex with Strangers, you can relax. The play is much tamer than many with less suggestive titles. It’s the psychological blood and guts of having a relationship that makes this work so interesting. Sex with Strangers, it turns out, is […]Read More
A major theatrical endeavor came to fruition last week in Portland–a collaboration between Artists Repertory Theatre, the all-Cuban timba band Tiempo Libre, and actor-playwright Carlos Lacamara. Lacamara’s first musical, the play depicts the lives of Cubans living in Fidel Castro’s “special period in a time of peace”. It was right after the collapse of the […]Read More
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
