About the author...
Judi’s software consulting work has taken her all over the world even out to the Marshall Islands where she flew to work each day. Her bookshelves are filled with photographs and journals that capture her experiences and feed her imagination as she writes. But her roots and true inspiration come from New England, in the mountains of Vermont and by her childhood beaches of Wellfleet on Cape Cod.
In 2011, she began her writing journey with three published travel articles on Ireland, The Many Faces of Ireland, followed by a short story, Safe Harbor, published in July 2012. Then, inspired by the death of her sister in 2015, Judi wrote and published two children's books, "Fiona - the Lighthouse Firefly" and "Fiona the Firefly - LOST!” both titles available on Amazon, the proceeds of which feed a scholarship fund that Judi set up in her sister’s name. Scholarships are being awarded to students studying Business and Technology.
In her spare time, Judi is a professional watercolorist, reads, walks, gardens, and enjoys family and friends. But wherever she is, her characters and their magical worlds fill her mind.
Judi has been involved with writers’ groups for years, has taken Creative Writing at FAU, and has worked with authors in workshops whenever possible. She’s also an editor for Wiley’s technical magazine, Journal of Software: Evolution and Process.
Her debut novel (She’s Not You - a mystery with a splash of romance), has received excellent reviews… and a sequel is in the works!
“Seriously, I loved the story, it’s twists & turns and the ending leaving room for book 2 which I will await anxiously !”
“I was engrossed & couldn’t put it down!”
“It built up in mystery and emotion and certainly was tense at the finish.” “So very "Cape Cod" you'll feel the sand in your shoes as you read it

If you like mysteries like "The Woman in Cabin 10"--the recent NY Times best seller--you will find "She's Not You" is just as well written, fast paced, engaging and suspenseful--peppered with clues and full of surprises for its very believable and likable characters. A jolly good read (and there's a romance, too).”
"She's Not You" by Judi Getch Brodman is a fantastic read!!!
A winning trifecta...romance/thriller/mystery! Being from Massachusetts, I love the fact that this book takes place on Cape Cod and in Boston. The story line draws you in from the first chapter and does not disappoint right up to the end. I feel as though I got to know the main characters, Jamie and Jack personally while accompanying them through the twists and turns of their adventure and I look forward to reconnecting with them again in the near future. Great read!!
Her new novel, The Looking Glass Labyrinth, should be available soon.

A small, isolated fishing village on the tip of Cape Cod, a place where the town’s jail has one cell with a broken lock and the police force consists of the Chief and two deputies, seems an unlikely spot for dead women to be washing ashore. And yet, so far this summer, two bodies have been discovered on the morning tide, both resembling each other and Jamie Janson.
Jamie returns to Oyster Point to clean out and sell her grandaunt Pita’s Cape Cod cottage, a place filled with family memories – when there had been a family. Her homecoming is marred by the discovery of a woman’s body during her morning run along the beach. Huddled around the seaweed encrusted form is a group of men, including Oyster Point’s Chief of Police, Jack Hereford. Is their meeting destiny, chance or orchestrated by Pita? Jack soon realizes that Jamie’s emotional fragility belies her inner strength and courage – unspoken qualities by Pita when she asked him to watch over Jamie. That deathbed promise will turn out to be the toughest part of his job and maybe the best part of his life.
As Jamie settles into her life on the Cape, an unknown male with camera in hand shadows her everywhere – on the beach, around her cottage, even at Jack’s sister’s house. With her life spinning out of control, Jamie’s visions resume, dreams she hasn’t had since her parents were killed when she was sixteen. Making a vow to confront the stalker and keep him from forcing her to live in fear, she and Jack devise a plan to entice the suspected stalker out into the open. The scheme backfires and Jamie’s gone….
An unheeded warning from her best friend, an estate sale at a “haunted” crumbling Victorian, a painted woman whose sparkling blue eyes follow her every move, a cracked discolored mirror that reflects another’s face, and mysterious words that materialize in a diary – all these events create a vortex through which Rachael Corbet is sucked back to 1804 and into Lady Rachael Johnston’s body. Why? Lady Rachael’s written words are quite clear, “You can and will save my captain.” Impossible – the man has been dead for centuries, shot and killed right here in this house. Trying to escape what she hopes is a dream, Rachael runs directly into the arms of Lady Johnston’s returning sea captain and totally understands why Lady Rachael desires to keep him alive… he’s takes Rachael’s breath away with his tenderness, strength and thoughtfulness. Is she falling for a man who died centuries ago? She would have to change the past to keep him alive. Yet history has a way of repeating itself. Unscrupulous rogues, including Lady Rachael’s pathetic brother, attempt to abduct her for her inheritance. A shot is heard; Nathaniel shouts for Rachael to run; she turns to flee and then, in an instant, chooses to alter history. If she saves him, will she give him up? Will she return to her pathetic life or choose to stay with the sea captain she loves?
