Jude is one of those rarities: a sci-fi author who’s actually optimistic about the future of the human race and got tired of the same old post-apocalyptic/Evil Government/dystopian/space battles/androids/AI/all of the above. For her, it’s always been about the new planets, new flora and fauna and a more realistic, hopeful take on the future (with absolutely NO AI/androids) making her books accessible to people who normally don’t enjoy sci-fi.
Her books feature people living ordinary lives; they’re just doing it hundreds of years in the future on different planets with their own unique cultures and languages, and nary an android/AI unit in sight or under development, for reasons that are explained in-universe. As she once put it, “The Projects universe isn’t a dystopia, nor is it a utopia. It’s just a topia.”
She currently lives in Chiba with her husband, where they’re both owned by two rescue cats.
