Judith Dawn Surber is a working wife and mother. She resides on the Hoopa Valley Indian Reservation, of which she is a tribal member, located in far Northern California. She has spent the majority of her adult life working for her tribe in many different capacities and has served on various tribal and community boards.
When Judith is not working, she is writing. She enjoys spending time with her grandchildren. This is the first book she has written about life on the reservation with several more she is working on. Although some of the topics that she writes about are not pretty, they are written in the spirit of bringing attention to the plague that so many Native families are facing and living with on a daily basis.
