Judy Duarte is an inspirational and romance author from Southern California who has said that she always knew she was born to be an author. She was thrown a curve ball more than two decades ago and did what many new single mothers do.

She pulled her four kids and herself together determined to make it as she started chasing her dreams. The best way she knew of becoming a role model was to show them that she had the grit and determination to follow her dreams.

Duarte went back to school and graduated from the University of California, Irvine just about the time when her children were turning into teenagers. Having achieved her dream of graduating from college, she finally got her perfect mate but she still had one dream she had yet to achieve which kept nagging at her.
She always knew she had at least one book in her but since she never liked English in school, she never considered writing as a career she could pursue.

Despite her dislike of English as a subject, Judy Duarte has been a spinner of stories ever since she was a child. As a single mother, she spent a lot of time telling her children stories, creating characters and plots as she carpooled and commuted to college.

Determined to follow her dreams, she became a member of the Romance Writers of America. It is here that she met fellow award winning authors Sheri Whitefeather and Crystal Green that would become her critique partners. She was a natural born storyteller and could come up with plots and characters quite easily.

But she still had to learn to write and make the scenes in her mind come alive. Her determination to become published grew with each passing day as she learned her craft and fine tuned her writing techniques. She gravitated toward stories of true love, second chances and family, which were the types of stories she loves to read.

Duarte has made a name for herself taking ordinary characters who are placed in emotionally compelling situations, where they have to sink or swim.

Judy Duarte’s manuscripts have won her several awards over the years including the Orange Rose and Emily awards in addition to being a RWA Golden Heart finalist. Her dream of becoming a published author would finally be achieved in 2002 when “Cowboy Courage,” her first novel, was published under Silhouette Special Edition.

Since then she has published more than forty novels across more than nine series and several single standing titles. Her tales of renewed trust and redemption have inspired many of her fans across the world.

Her novel “The Rich Man’s Son” won the Reader’s Choice Award in 2005 and this is when she knew she had made it as an author.
Judy now lives in Southern California with her husband and cat in a beach home.

“Mulberry Park” by Judy Duarte is a novel set in Fairbrook, a suburb of San Diego. It is a quiet and peaceful haven for locals from different walks of life. Mulberry Park is a suburb with lush green lawns and smack at the center of it is a massive mulberry tree, from which it takes its name.

The lead in the novel is Claire Harper who usually jogs for miles and drives to the park every day after work as she hopes to find a respite from her sadness. But it is a futile attempt until a letter is blown from a nearby tree. Inside the envelope is a letter on top of which is written “To God from Analisa.”

The letter has been written by a seven year old who is asking God to take care of her dead parents that she believes are in heaven and help her loved ones on Earth. Claire impulsively writes back in the hope that she can preserve the seven year old girl’s belief in prayer, even though she has lost her faith.

Over time, Analisa manages to draw Claire out of her isolation and into the regular friendships of other residents who frequent Mulberry Park. As the friendships develop, each will discover how impactful one letter can be.

Judy Duarte’s novel “Entertaining Angels” opens to a pregnant teenager named Renee who leaves her relatives home as she will not abort her baby.
Another character in the novel is a single mother named Kristen that has to take care of her son all alone. She is also responsible for her aging grandmother that has been debilitated by a stroke.

There is also a new assistant pastor at the local church named Craig who had to give up a professional baseball career after a serious injury. He then decided to follow his grandfather and go into ministry.

Cassandra and Daniel are members of the same church and given that the home Craig was supposed to live in was not yet ready, they invited Craig to live with them. They are well off financially since Daniel is a successful lawyer even though Craig soon realizes that everything is not as fine as it may seem at first glance.

Their daughter Shauna has just gotten engaged to a young man from a very rich family but she does not seem thrilled. It is going to be quite a ride for Craig getting to know the members of the church and helping them with their troubles.

While many of the church members have challenges, they are about to learn that the future can redeem and surprise people especially if friendship and courage abound.

“The House on Sugar Plum Lane” by Judy Duarte sees new characters and old friends mingle in a compelling story of family, second chances, faith and new beginnings. Amy Masterson has rented a beautiful fully furnished house where she intends to start over.

But then she learns that the old house once belonged to Eleanor Rucker, her great grandmother that her mother had been searching for for years. She hopes that living in that house, she can gaze into a past her mother died before she could.

Slowly, she settles into her new life in Fairbrook, where she is shocked to learn that her grandmother still lives on the same street. She is now under the care of Maria, her neighbor. But Ellie is losing her mental capacities fast as her memories fade with each passing day.

When Amy goes to introduce herself, Ellie does not recognize her leaving her heartbroken at the chance they missed. But she still trusts and hopes that the bonds of love even if unseen will not be broken.
