Judith Sanders – The Huntsman: A Psychological Thriller – 598

Author: Steven Miletto

Judith Sanders – The Huntsman: A Psychological Thriller. This is episode 598 of Teaching Learning Leading K12, an audio podcast.

Judith Sanders was born and raised in New Jersey, where she spent most of her childhood exploring the great outdoors and dreaming of one day becoming a nurse. After graduating high school, she pursued her passion for healthcare and earned a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Graceland University.
The Huntsman is her fourth novel. Her first book, Crescent Veil, is a novel about germ warfare which Heartland Reviews praised as ‘nonstop action based on the real deal by authors who should know what they are presenting’. Other books by Judith – In His Stead and Star Finder
She was an Indie Excellence Award Finalist for In His Stead and was shortlisted for Chanticleer International Book Awards for Star Finder. She has been featured in interviews by dozens of news media outlets.
Judith’s dedication to her profession led her to work on the front lines in community hospitals and as a civilian nurse at the US Army’s lead infectious Disease Institute in Maryland, where she gained invaluable experience and knowledge that would shape her life and career.
After raising three boys and moving around, living in Somerville, NJ, San Antonio Tx, Albany, NY, Frederick and Clarksburg MD, Phoenixville, PA, and Leland/Wilmington NC, she and her husband finally settled in rural New Hampshire, where she found solace in the quiet lakeside days and evenings that inspire her writing.
Judith’s extensive experience in nursing has not only helped her develop a keen sense of empathy and understanding for people from all walks of life but has also allowed her to draw inspiration for her writing from the stories of real people living and struggling through life one chapter at a time. Her best stories are a collage of bits and pieces taken from these experiences, creating a rich tapestry of characters and situations that resonate with readers of all ages.

Frank is Judith Sanders’ husband of 42 years and was coauthor on Judith’s first book “CRESCENT VEIL”, a fiction novel about the hunt for a biologic weapons terrorist on the loose in the Middle East.
Frank is trained as a medical virologist and had a career in the military (US Army Lieutenant Colonel, retired) and then civilian pharmaceutical medicine developing vaccines to help prevent infectious diseases before retiring from practice in 2022.

In the course of Judith’s novels Dr. Malinoski has supported and facilitated the publication and promotion of her works.  Frank has been a confidant to Judith in her writing and an early reviewer of her books.  Judith is known for taking bits and pieces of real people she has met to mold the characters she writes about although Frank believes he was not a model for THE HUNTSMAN.
Frank’s first reaction after reading THE HUNTSMAN was to decide if he should hide the kitchen knife sets.
BA from Colby College
PhD from Rutgers University
MD from Albany Medical College of Union University

A little bit about The Huntsman…
ICU nurse Max Mason fears his pregnant wife is the latest victim of a serial killer who has terrorized their small New Hampshire town. The investigation is at a standstill as the prime suspect, Lincoln Raider, is in a coma. In a desperate and unethical act, Max sits at Lincoln’s bedside night after night employing brainwashing techniques and subliminal suggestion to convince the suspect they are kindred-spirits, hoping it will lead to a confession or at least a clue. When Lincoln awakens, he draws Max into a whirlpool of terror, deception, and violence, ultimately pulling Lincoln’s wife and daughter into the vortex as well.

Cool story!
