The story of

Anoop Judge

Born and raised in New Delhi, I now reside in California. I am currently pursuing an MFA in Creative Writing at Saint Mary’s College and am the recipient of the 2021–2023 Advisory Board Award and Alumni Scholarship.

I am the author of The Rummy Club, which won the 2015 Beverly Hills Book Award, and a 2019 Pushcart Prize nominee for The Awakening of Meena Rawat. My third novel, No Ordinary Thursday is now available for pre-order.

A recovering litigator, former TV presenter, and blogger, I have had essays and short stories published in Green Hills Literary Lantern, Rigorous, and Scarlet Leaf Review, among others.

I am  married with two nearly grown and fully admirable children.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

—Theodore Roosevelt
