Some Write It Hot

Meet Judith Leger By Amber Green

Her myspace page says Judith Leger (pronounced LaZHAY) has 2476 friends. That’s true only if you limit the count to myspace. There are more on Facebook. Her blog, as seldom as she updates it, still has more than three dozen public followers. She tweets–and has over 1400 followers on Twitter.

She watches anime and reads manga in between keeping half a college running, doting on an aging Appaloosa, and playing lady in waiting to a supremely regal dachshund who doesn’t like being on a diet. Plus there’s the husband, the kids, the grandbaby. And she writes. Her writing can break a heart, or mend it. Read her Mother’s Day essay.

She keeps up with other people’s lives and troubles and triumphs, and still finds time to read way more than I do. She writes books and short stories too. Yet she always has time to help me brainstorm the motivation for my book’s next scene–or what the motivation leads to if it doesn’t lead to the next scene I’d envisioned. Where does she get the energy? Is this some weird side effect of listening to Linkin Park, The Beatles, and Metallica? How can she possibly get so much done and still be so incredibly nice?

  1. George Clooney AND Sean Connery follow her My Space. Now, if she ever gets Richard Gere, I’ll be even more jealous. I asked her once how she managed to acquire all those fans, and she said, “Perseverance.”

    And she continues to show us all how to promote. Besides that, she’s just plain wonderful.

    • I’m working on Richard. Just give me some time. He’s a hard nut to crack. The pics I keep sending him isn’t working so it’s time to pull out the big guns.

      • Thanks, Pam! I was wondering who was posting anonymous. Glad you stopped by, hon! We need to get together more often!

  4. Judy is so awesome. I love our chats. She’s a social butterfly and so fun to interact with. And what Amber has written is absolutely true…she is one of the most helpful and giving people I have met. And one hell of a talented writer…and did I mention she’s a social butterfly? I’ll add that she’s a super cheerleader as well. If I’m feeling down or frustrated, she’s one of the first I would turn to.

    Judy, You da bomb! Love you to pieces!!!

  6. Judy sounds amazing! We should all be so fortunate to have someone like her in our lives. I’m willing to bet her friends help keep her going just as much and she feels just as honored by each of you.

  7. Amber, I have no words to tell you how special you are to me. Love you!

  8. I must concur with all the comments. It’s so easy to see why Judith is so popular. She’s accessible and thinks of others before herself, and I would love to live near her. I know we’d be good friends.

    Cyber hugs to you, Judith. Whatever you’re doing, keep on doing it. If you get Richard Gere, I AM moving (closer to you). Put the coffee on, hun.

    My best, Keta

  10. I am just making the aquaintance of Ms. Judy, however, with praises such as these, I must have struck platinum. I loved getting such a vivid glimpse of you through the eyes and very capable pen of Ms. Green, Judith. The time for our little interview can’t get here soon enough now.

    Thanks for the email invitation to share your blog.

    Funny you should mention blessings rainging down, I’ve been listening to a song that I might have to send to you.

  11. It’s no wonder so many follow her–I had the pleasure of working with her and it was a delightful experience with a talented author. Keep on what you’re doing! 🙂

  12. Dang, I’ve been saying her name wrong for so long. *blushes* Judy is one of my favorite crit buddies. When she rips into my stories, she lets it fly and isn’t afraid to say WHATEVER she’s thinking. Hey, that reminds me–I owe her a crit! Hmmm, do you have anything posted, Judy?

    Comment by Gillian Archer — September 22, 2010 @ 10:06 | Reply

    • Nope, nothing up right now. Hopefully won’t be long. Yeah, most people don’t realize my name is said with the French accent. Thanks for stopping by!

  13. I adore Judith. She’s definitely a champion to me. Met her on ning and haven’t looked back since. She’s busy, but she makes the time to support, encourage others. She’s stuck with me! LOL

  16. Holy smokes, girl. I knew you were good with the social networking but YOWZA! That is really impressive. I don’t know where you find the time to be in so many places at once, but I’m very glad that you do since I really enjoy your insight and input.

    • It ain’t easy, Lauren. But you know with all the wonderful people I’ve met along this journey, it’s worth it!

  18. I love Judy. When I was all set to quit and throw in the towel she dragged me back in the ring and offered to help me work on my story until it shone. I have no idea how you find the time babe but we are all glad you do.

    Comment by Lillian Grant — September 22, 2010 @ 15:02 | Reply

    • Hugs, girlfriend! And you are too talented an author to want to throw that towel! The writing world would have lost out on some wonderful, enticing stories!

  20. What a nice tribute to a good friend. I have no clue how she does it all. Secret twin, clone, she has a maid, who knows, but I find it amazing she can accomplish so much when I can’t!!
    Judith you are just amazing!!
    How wonderful a friend you have in Amber, what a great tribute to a good friendship ladies.

  23. Judy! Judy! Judy! She is KIND, GENEROUS, DELIGHTFUL, HARDWORKING, and SUPPORTIVE! Every time I start a new endeavor, pick up an old one to dust off and start again, or post a picture of just about anything, Judith offers terrific comments, a hug, or both. She never misses a moment to encourage me. I don’t know what I would do without her friendship and honest, eager pushes (I mean that in the BEST way). Thank you, Judith for all you do!!!

    • Oh, he’s definitely high up on my list of follows! Sigh…to be able to cuddle with that prime example of sexy male is a dream I’m aspiring towards. So if I get him first, I want to let you know, I’m not sharing. Sorry…just saying.

  27. WOW! Who would think such a sweet little thing like you with all these friends would drive a big old honker of a Diesel pickup truck. Now that you have your cow head back up on the wall, I’ll have to try to get by and chat again. You always have such a good lookin’ bunch of other cowgirls hanging around your office.
