About the Author

As a very young child, Judy was afraid of the water, until the fateful day her father picked her up and threw her, water-wings and all, into the deep end of the pool. She immediately realized that she had found her true element, and hasn't come out of the water since, except grudgingly to earn enough money to support her diving habit. She and her husband, Jon Fellows, spent their honeymoon in 1974 diving in Cozumel, and in the four decades since then have dived extensively around the Channel Islands of Southern California. They have also traveled to the Turks and Caicos Islands, Mexico's Sea of Cortez, Fiji, Borneo, Papua New Guinea, Tonga, and the Solomon Islands to get their diving fixes. Now retired and living in the Central Coast area of California, they have given up cold water diving, but still travel to tropical waters, always in search of new diving adventures.
