More About the Author

Hello! Thanks for clicking. I'm Jude Watson, and I write for kids. It's the best job in the world.

As a writer, I wear two hats. As Judy Blundell I write for Young Adults, and I won the National Book Award for my novel, WHAT I SAW AND HOW I LIED.

I write for middle-graders while wearing my Jude Watson hat, which is a bit more colorful. Maybe it even has a spinning propeller on top. I love to write mystery-adventures with thrilling twists and oddball characters and kids who find themselves in impossible situations doing incredible things.

I do all this from a chair, in a little room, in a not-big house, in a small town on Long Island. I like to read and I like to draw (badly) and my idea of excitement is to lace up my sneakers and walk to the harbor and back. I'm a nervous flyer and though I am respectful of the physics of modern aviation I also secretly suspect that it is only the unified belief of passengers that tons of metal can hurtle through the air that keeps a plane in flight. I am also not terribly comfortable on suspension bridges. And don't even ask me to go on a ferris wheel.

I am listing these fears just to clue you in: I'm a physical coward. I'm also a creature of habit. Once in awhile I go a little crazy and take a different route to the grocery store.

Still, I'll throw incredible amounts of danger at my characters. And I'll cackle maniacally while I do it.

Other random facts: During deadline periods I am deeply committed to popcorn and apples.

Every summer I go to Cape Cod, and every summer I wish I had a whole month there. I never do.

I am waiting for the day I'll see someone reading a book of mine in an airport or a train or a diner. I will most likely embarrass myself by cavorting and singing "That's ME!"

If you want to learn more about me or take a look at my books, visit my website, judewatsonbooks.com. Until then, happy reading!

Customer Reviews

A little sad maybe but good anyway.
Obi-Wan Kenobi
Extremely well-written, the emotions, thoughts, and feelings of the main characters are very well put down into words.
Priscilla Stafford
I think this is the best book in the Jedi Apprentice series because it explains about Obi-Wan's problems.

Do you know that feeling where your heart is pounding, you pulse is racing, your stomach twisting in knots, and your adrenaline pumping? All of the six jedi apprentice books have done that to me, and this one is no exception. As an eighteen year old college student, I am well out of the age range, but I not only love these books, I have also gotten my twenty year old roomate hooked on them. My one major problem is the relationship between Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan. Obi-Wan forgave Guerra for betraying him on Bandomeer and almost getting him killed. He also forgave Jono and Nield. I think its time for Qui-Gon to learn another lesson from his padawan, especially since its partly his fault Obi-Wan left. This book adds a depth to both characters that didnt really exist before. Obi-Wan realizes that he is not complete without Qui-Gon, and Qui-Gon begins to realize how much Obi-Wan means to him. They are meant for each other, but they make it so hard for themselves. It also allows us a deeper look into the temple, and the problems there. Its a wonderful book, with great characters who grab your heart and wont let go.

if you are familliar with the series, this book will only reinforce your love of Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon. I found myself on pins and needles towrds the end, Obi-Wan really grows up in this book and realizes who/what he is - a JEDI! The best part is we get to see Qui-Gon interacting with other jedi, which _really_ helps to flesh him out even more. The only problem i had with this book is that it was too short (as were the other 5)...if only they would make this an adult series! but its still one of the best series out there for the old school jedi faction of star wars fans... :) read it!

This book was awesome. The whole series is great and I can't wait for the next installment. I read this on the way home from school and I realized that this is one book that can really touch you. The realationships between the characters are so complex that you can almost think of the next move they will make. In my opinion Tahl is really cool, Cerasi almost had me in tears, Roenni showed real friendship, Qui-Gon realized that Obi-Wan is just a kid and that you can't give up on kids, Neild learned that you can't trust everybody and Obi-Wan realized what he was... This book has only one fault... it's too short. (And please don't let the age range keep you from buying this book- I'm over the "limit" and I love these books.)

Format: Paperback
Yet again, another wonderful, suspenseful read for this well - beyond - the - recommended - age - range reader. These books may be written for a younger audience, but they are better crafted than a lot of adult science fiction I've read, and the content is far from watered down. War, death, betrayal... some pretty intense themes! I wish I had been fortunate enough to have such a series when I was in that 9-12 range, though I am pleased I can enjoy them as an adult. I wonder if Watson and Lucas are aware that these books have such an enthusiastic adult following. If so, they should consider letting Watson write a few longer novels about Qui-gon and Obi-wan's relationship. Once again, my only complaint about this series is that the books are too short. A quick, thrilling hour's read, and then another two months of waiting. Arrggggg!

I would like to add to the other reviews. The Jedi Apprentice books are wonderful because we all know what will happen in "The Phantom Menace". And yet, these books are written in such a way that you are uncertain about the futures of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn. "The Uncertain Path" has all the elements of a Action/Mystery story and is very compelling to read. The characters are portrayed in a very human and Jedi fashion. Most importantly, this book is entertaining.

Format: Paperback
Book 6 in the Jedi Apprentice series is suspenceful, emotional, and all in all interesting. I've read the other 5 and this one I could not put down. Jude Watson writes so you feel the emotions the characters feel, you feel happy when they do and you feel sad when they do. it wouldn't hurt for the books to be a little longer but other than that I think all of them are great and I can't wait till the 7th comes out. Even though you know what happens in the end, in Episod 1, these books make you feel like you're not sure if that is what really will happen. I constantly find myself convincing myself that every thing will work out. These are excellent books and I suggest them to anyone who likes Star Wars, or Sci-fi

Wonderful! I can't say enough good things about this book or about the series. Why do we have to wait so long between books? I find myself completely enthralled with the emerging relationship between the young Padawan and his Master and every installment gives me a new appreciation for them as they appear in The Phantom Menace. Any chance Jude Watson will get to write any of the adult SW books? <hint hint> (not that the "Young Adult" label has kept this 30something from devouring this series!)

Format: Paperback
The bloody civil war on the planet of Melida/Daan has ended with the Young the victors. Obi-Wan has left the Jedi order to stay with his friends Cerasi, Nield, and the rest of the Young to govern the planet. But instead of having peace after so much war, the Young is starting to break up. Everyone is fighting each other, dividing friends. Taking up the chance, the Elders of Melida and Daan begin to protest. Qui-Gon himself is having many problems. After returning Tahl back to the Temple, he still feels betrayed by Obi-Wan for abandoning him. He finds it hard to forgive Obi-Wan for hurting him, can he ever be able to forgive him? Then he discovers that a series of thefts have begun in the Temple. Could it be one of the Jedi students, or someone outside the Temple? Then Qui-Gon gets the shock of his life, Obi-Wan calls for help! Will Qui-Gon go back to his former apprentice to help?
A continuation from the previous book, "The Defenders of the Dead", the story really explores the characters of Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon. Obi-Wan has left the Jedi order willingly, yet he begins to have doubts about his choice. Will he ever be one with the Force again? And will he ever get Qui-Gon back as his Master? Qui-Gon is also hurt and betrayed, finding it hard to forgive Obi-Wan. Together they must search their hearts to find out what is the correct path for them. A good ending though you'll probably be in suspense for what is going to happen next in "The Captive Temple". Jude Watson has certainly done an astounding job, the plot and story of the book is so unique and interesting and I couldn't put it down! I still enjoy reading the books as much as I did when they first started coming out in the summer of 1999.
This series explains a lot about how Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan first meet.
