Judith Mehl parlayed her writing experience and handwriting analysis expertise into a series of mysteries. As former editor of the journal for the American Association of Handwriting Analysts, she learned an appreciation of mind-to-pen revelation that became an important tool in her books in the handwriting mystery series, while Judith’s long-time interest in nature and medicinal plants came to the forefront in the Lizzie Ort herbal sleuth series. The two series are intertwined when Lizzie appears in the third handwriting mystery, "Murder Most Floral." A minor character, Lizzie Ort, assists Kat in her detection work. Lizzie charged forward off the pages of the book and found murder in her own series, beginning with "Fountain of Death."
Mehl is a member of Sisters in Crime, Pocono Liars Club, and the Greater Lehigh Valley Writers Group. She is also active with the county Children and Youth agency, Pocono Herb Club, Crazy Quilters and Pocono Mountain Quilters Guild.
In addition to the handwriting mystery series, "Formula for Murder," followed by "Game, Set, Murder," and "Murder Most Floral," and her new herbal detection series beginning with "Fountain of Death," Judith’s work is included in two anthologies, "A Readable Feast," and "Once Upon a Time."
