Crystal Judkins, a native of Alexandria, Virginia, began writing at the tender age of 7. From the moment she picked up a pen, she knew she’d never be able to put it down again. Coming from a musically talented and art infused family; she always had a tap in her feet and a song bellowing in her spirit. Early on, she had no doubt in her mind that the arts would be where she’d flourish. Not only is Crystal a published author and poet,she is also the co-founder of Two Pens and a Grind Publications.
