After training as a teacher, Judith Bruce (née Miles) joined the BBC in 1960 as a clerk. By 1972 she was a Television Research Assistant and by 1974 a Producer. While working at the BBC she wrote stories for young children, which were broadcast both on Playschool and You & Me.
After taking early retirement in 1991, she went on to run the Battle Arts Festival in East Sussex for 11 years and then turned her hand to writing prose, receiving an MA in Creative Writing at the University of Sussex in 2008. She has previously been published as a poet under the name Judith Warrington. She enjoys playing bridge, cooking, entertaining and water-colour painting - and of course watching films and television (she is a voting member of BAFTA). She lives on the Sussex coast
