Judith Yates Borger

A few years ago Judith Yates Borger was a fulltime newspaper reporter who mothered three kids, two cats and a dog, ran a big house and tried to be a good wife. Her guilty pleasure was reading mysteries well past midnight. When the St. Paul Pioneer Press refused to pay for her car, which was firebombed while she covered a riot for the paper, she decided it was time to get a new gig. She began writing mysteries for other manic moms looking for the same guilty pleasures she had enjoyed. Her protagonist, Skeeter Hughes, is a newspaper reporter whose car gets firebombed in the first book. Skeeter faces the same conflict many women feel: How to juggle the personal with the professional. Borger lives in Minneapolis with her husband, John, and her Havanese puppy, Honey.

As amazing as it is, this year, for the first time ever,  we're going to be closed for Memorial Day!

That means we're going to be closed, Saturday-Monday May 23rd-25th,  2020.

I know what you're thinking--what???  The whole country's been closed down for two months!  Whaddya mean, you're taking off?  Well, we haven't been closed.  We've been here working harder than ever, due to a wildly increased demand for our services, so honestly, the Crew and I desperately need these days away.  No telephone calls or emails will be answered.  The admin office needs a break.  We'll be back, everything to the ready, the morning of Tuesday, May 26th, to get cracking.  Thank you for your support and understanding.  And please, don't forget why we honor Memorial Day.  We should never--never--forget The Fallen.  

For those of you already in production, the production crew is running full steam; Judith (QA--Quality assurance, our Princess of Perfection) and Jay (Our Doyenne of Customer Delight) will be here and working, checking books and sending them out, so please, don't worry.  It's just we lazybones in the admin office that need a break!
