Judith Lynn Kalinin Pruett Blankenship King is a life-long, self-published poet and author of other, previously unpublished works! Staying true to her art and never choosing a sure-fire, back-up career despite a couple of lifetimes worth of publishing house rejection, she has supported herself with a variety of odd jobs including (but not limited to): bartender, motel manager, waitress, pot scrubber, proof reader, ornament maker, fish market attendant, electrician apprentice, cook, math tutor, dietary aid and caregiver.
Judith has participated in poetry readings in Monterey, CA; Sedona, Arizona; New York City; San Francisco; and South San Francisco, CA where she was the featured reader.
Also a self-taught numerologist, she has been doing numerology charts for almost 30 years, and has never charged a penny for her readings.
Other passions include: gemology, natural medicine, Native American & ancient history, stargazing, archaeology, animal totems, angels & saints, ancestral research, gardening, vintage machinery and the Tarot.
Judith has recently completed writing the biography of American comedian Dan Rowan; a labor of love which she worked on for an entire decade and hopes to publish in the near future.
Her first self-published memoir, “Blue Star Exploding”, is currently accessible in ebook form here.
