- Scar Ghyll Levels, a historical short story about two miners in an ace/non-ace relationship was always intended to be spoken. The video is complete with 200 photographs.
Jude has written six novels featuring her crime-prone, all-male, North East England quad and she still doesn’t know what the characters look like. Hence the silhouettes on the books’ covers. She’s pretty sure that her Q+ labels are ace and aegosexual. She doesn’t even like to read about other women, let alone write about them—it’s too close to self-participation—but, although never present in body in the stories, she is often there in mind, especially when she writes about compromise. Being an ace who has been long married to a non-ace man, she reckons she’s an expert on relationships involving compromise.
She blogs regularly, has a YouTube channel (only one upload as Covid scuppered her plans), and is happy scrabbling in mining-spoil heaps, indulging in her love of geology and industrial history.
