Talk soon,

Hi there!

On my mind

What’s not to discuss?! My last book was about Jewish women’s resistance in WW2, but I also write about mothers and daughters, humor and comedy, hoarding and minimalism, contemporary women’s art and domestic design, living in Canada vs USA vs UK, and matza brei. I’m currently obsessing over 1930s fashion and bowel health.

Why I'm excited to talk with readers

My readers keep me on my toes and always inspire me. I get my ideas from talking to you. I am so grateful, readers!

Very best

Judy

Where I've written

The Light of Days

The Untold Story of Women Resistance Fighters in Hitler’s Ghettos

One of the most important stories of World War II, already optioned by Steven Spielberg for a major motion picture: a spectacular, searing history that brings to light the extraordinary accomplishments of brave Jewish women who became resistance fighters—a group of unknown heroes whose exploits have never been chronicled in full, until now.

Powerful and inspiring, featuring twenty black-and-white photographs, The Light of Days is an unforgettable true tale of war, the fight for freedom, exceptional bravery, female friendship, and survival in the face of staggering odds.  

“Until now…the heroic girls were largely nameless and forgotten. But in The Light of Days, Batalion rectifies this historical wrong.”
