About the Author
Judge Judy rules, on and off the bench, where she dishes her unique brand of common sense with a dose of humor and heart. Her syndicated show, JUDGE JUDY, is #1 in daytime TV, viewed by millions of loyal followers. Over the past 16 seasons, JUDGE JUDY has reached an iconic status, and she has appeared on everything from Saturday Night Live to Nightline to The View, and has been interviewed by most major national publications. Everyone wants to know what Judge Judy says—about everything from popular culture to politics to modern family life. With her popular new Web site, What Would Judy Say®?, she has created a lively forum to exchange ideas on life and relationships. What Would Judy Say: A Grownup Guide to Living Together (with Benefits) is the first in a series of books based on the Web site, where Judge Sheindlin weighs in with wit and savvy. “When I was young, you either left your parents’ house in a white dress or a pine box,” she writes. “The norms have changed. Living together without benefit of marriage is now common.” The result is a whole new set of complications and possibilities, and Judy responds with her trademark mix of practicality and frankness, based on a lifetime of experience in and out of the courtroom. The result is a satisfying exchange of stories and ideas for anyone who chooses to embark upon the grand adventure of living together. Judy is the author of three bestselling adult books and two children’s books. She is married to Judge Jerry Sheindlin, a former Justice of the Supreme Court of New York. They have five children and twelve grandchildren.
