Background Information

J.L. Smith is a freelance writer who developed a strong love for the written word as a young child.  Her mother was particularly fond of the writings of Erma Bombeck and Judy came to love her works as well, scanning the pages of the newspaper every chance she got for a dose of Erma's whimsical words of wisdom. 

A particular favorite was a piece entitled "A Mother's Love" that describes how difficult it is at times to tell your child "no" even when they hate you for it.  It is a story that any parent can certainly relate to.  Judy's mother cut it from the newspaper and gave it to her when she was a teen.  Yellowed and wrinkled, it remains one of her most prized possessions…one she has copied for her daughter, Daylena. 

From the AAFES (Army and Air force Exchange Services: 


The book is first in a series of stories dedicated to the caregivers of military families. In this book, Smith writes about her personal journey as a grandmother caring for her young grandson while both parents are deployed in service to our Nation. This is a story of commitment, frustration and unwavering love.

It has been a long time since I laughed and cried (so much) over the contents of a single book…presenting,

Additional Information

Judy's first book "Reporting for Doodie" is the first in a series designed to acknowledge and praise the caregivers of our military children. Her story of commitment, frustration and unwavering love details the ups and downs of her particular tour of "doodie". It is a story that ends in the reinvention of herself and one that she hopes others will find to be inspirational and uplifting as well. The producers of the Oprah Winfrey Show found her story to be so inspirational that they asked Judy to be a guest on the show earlier this year. After introducing a number of "makeovers" that the show had done via artificial means, Judy was introduced as someone who made herself over the "natural" way after going through an unexpected divorce and coming through it as a new women, inside and out.
