aka Judith Greber

Gillian Roberts is the pseudonym of Judith Greber and is the author of the Anthony-award winning Amanda Pepper mystery series that features a Philadelphia high school English teacher and her significant (but undernamed) other (and now fiancé), C. K. Mackenzie. Judith's been happily married for almost the entire last millennium, and is the mother of two grown sons. Gillian, Judith's mysterious alter-ego, was named at a party by Judith's friends after a publisher insisted she take another name for her mysteries, so as not to confuse the readers. Judith's been confused ever since.
