Judith St. George, who was born and raised in Westfield, New Jersey, had two childhood passions, sports and books. "In winter I skated on a local pond and sledded," she says. "The rest of the year I played tennis and softball. As for books, I read everything I could get my hands on, and still do."
After her graduation from Smith College, Judith married David St. George. They lived the following year in the historic Longfellow House in Cambridge, Massachusetts, which had been George Washington's headquarters during the first year of the American Revolution. Judith attributes much of her love of history, about which she writes with such authority, to that amazing experience.
Judith and her husband live in Connecticut. They have four grown children and five grandchildren.
