Judith Krantz (born Judith Tarcher on January 9, 1928 in New York City), is an American novelist who writes in the romance genre. Her works include Scruples, Princess Daisy, and Till We Meet Again.

Judith Krantz, known as Judy, grew up in New York City. She was the "youngest, smartest, and shortest girl" in her year. After graduating from the upscale Birch Wathen High School at age 16, Krantz enrolled at Wellesley College.

Krantz told the Boston Globe in 1982 that she attended Wellesley with three goals: to date, to read every novel in the library, and to graduate. "Torchy", as her dormmates named her, held the dorm dating record as the only one to have 13 consecutive dates with 13 different men. Her grades, unfortunately, were not as impressive as her extracurricular activities. Krantz earned one A-plus in English, but had a B- average in her major and C average in everything else. Krantz had the opportunity to improve her marks when she took a short-story class during her sophomore year. Although the professor enjoyed her writing, he refused to give her an A because she had atrocious spelling, and he thought the B would teach her a lesson. Krantz claims to have learned the lesson well -- she did not write fiction again for 31 years.
