Judy was born in Elizabeth, New Jersey in a home filled with books. She writes,                 
?And, yet, like most children, I sometimes felt alone. We didn't talk about                     
problems in our family. We kept our feelings to ourselves?I had a lot of                       
questions but I was afraid to ask them. I was curious about sex but no one gave                 
me any information.?                                                                           
Among her best-loved works are Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret (1970),
