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.
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
We met at a location in inner Southeast Portland at an address I can’t disclose. I can’t even tell you who was there. It had all the trappings of a real cloak and dagger event. As it turned out, there were only poison and a gun. This, gentle readers, was my introduction to Anonymous Theatre Company. The company […]Read More
It’s official! The Man Who Wasn’t There will be launched officially on Wednesday, September 23, 7 p.m. at Annie Bloom’s Books in Multnomah Village! If you can read this you’re invited. Annie’s is my neighborhood go-to bookstore. Unlike that other Portland bookstore, it probably is not internationally known, but it doesn’t need to be. It’s a […]Read More
There are two small town cops and a pyramid of donuts. There’s an oversexed and under-loved accountant who keeps removing her clothing. There’s an embezzling mayor. There are two bedrooms–make that two adjoining budget motel rooms–with interesting hardware on the headboards. Throw in a Highland hit man decked out in Scottish ceremonial gear, a security guy […]Read More
I hit the half-year mark a couple days ago with 16 books read. It’s not exactly the achievement I was hoping for, but truth be told, rewriting and revising The Man Who Wasn’t There has filled more than a few perfectly good evenings that otherwise could have been devoted to reading. Here are my reading highlights of the past few […]Read More
I learned of British mystery writer Ann Cleeves quite by accident when the mystery series Vera first was aired on Oregon Public Broadcasting a couple years ago. I was captivated by the dumpy, grumpy, woman-of-a-certain-age head of the Northumberland Police Department’s major crime unit. Played in the series by Brenda Blethyn, DCI Vera Stanhope uses and abuses her sergeant, […]Read More
Those of you who know me personally are aware that I, like my fictional heroine Emma Golden, lived in Yamhill County for 20 years. Harry, Ian, Wynne, and I moved out there in 1986 after I found a ruin of a house in downtown Newberg and decided that it needed the kind of help only we […]Read More
