Has anyone heard anything about Judith Ivory lately?  I think I remember hearing some time ago that she was very ill.  She hasn't published since 2006, and her website hasn't been updated.  I love her books.

This question comes up all the time, but I never hear any concrete information. She just seems to have faded out of sight. :-(

Its such a shame since she is, imo, one of the very, very best!

Yes, she is in my top 3 (if not top 1) HR writers.  All I can find about her lately is in Wikipedia, "Unfortunately, since the mid-2000s back problems have prevented Ivory from completing her latest work in progress, a Victorian-set novel that is potentially the first in a series ."

Has anyone tried sending a e-mail to Avon Books??  I think that is her publishing house.  They may be able to answer you question

I went to their website and didn't see a quick & easy way to contact them so, being the lazy person I am, I gave up temporarily (lol).  I'll try that soon, tho' and report back here if I get an answer.

I did the same thing, with the same result.  Must be a quirk in Avon's email system.

She seems to have completely disappeared.   I hope she's OK.  Some time ago I heard something about her being ill.  She's definitely one of my faves.

Last I heard she was ill, delaying a new book that was to come out, then she disappeared.  Some, I think it was All About Romance, wrote to her publisher about a year ago who replied they could not get in touch with her either.
