Judy Thorburn was born and raised in New York City, where she worked as a rock music journalist, associate editor of Hit Parader Magazine, and publicist at Atlantic Records.
A resident of Las Vegas since 1981, Judy has been covering and writing about the local entertainment scene for almost 15 years. For a decade, she was the entertainment reporter/movie critic for a local weekly newspaper, but has since moved on as an independent freelance writer for several print and on line publications and is founder/lead writer of the Internet entertainment/lifestyle news magazine www.lasvegasroundtheclock.com where you can read her Vegas Happenings column.
As a lifelong avid fan of feature and independent films, Judy also founded the Award winning, immensely popular website, theflickchicks.com., which carries her weekly movie reviews, coverage of red carpet premieres, film festivals and conventions, and other articles related to the motion picture industry.
Judy is the founder of the Nevada Film Critics Society.
When not writing about the latest and hottest events and openings in and around Las Vegas as well as the new flicks in release, Judy and her amazingly talented graphic artist/videographer husband Stephen love to dine out, share good times with close friends, play with their four lovable and wonderful felines, and, when possible, travel.
