About the Author










JL LeGerrette is the author of her first suspense/action/romance novel called You’re Clear. With a background as a Passenger Service Agent for an airline, combined with her lifetime role as a hairdresser for over forty years, she has combined those experiences of “understanding all walks of people” to spin out her fun tale. “There are few exceptions of careers where people allow you to come into their bubble and remain,” she shares when speaking of her career as a hairdresser. “You learn to ‘feel’ what people are ‘thinking’.” This translates into some fantastic ideas for future stories waiting to be born. She has felt honored to call her clients her dear friends as they all grew up, married, raised children, and faced life’s trials...laughing and growing in this life together. She’s a mother and grandmother who cherishes every breath her babies take as she considers being a mother and grandmother the best jobs in the world with the greatest return...unconditional love. 

She describes herself as an empty-nester now, using her time to chase the dream that never left her heart all those many years; writing. She wrote her first publication called The Colors of My Life, in 2012. She already had begun writing You're Clear a few years prior in her spare time but she sensed an immediate need to set that book aside and gather a collection of short stories and poems for The Colors of My Life. You can read about this particular, very important journey in one of her blog posts at http://jllegerrette.com/blog/so-here-s-the-thing

Over time, she plans to share more of the stories that live in the attic of her mind because there are many! She lives in the Pacific Northwest, hating and loving the rain, cherishing Spring and Fall as old friends, and waiting anxiously for their peaceful visits.


You're Clear~Jahnni, an Airline Supervisor with First Class Air at Portland International Airport finds her safe, planned-out day is interrupted by an airport evacuation, which she and four others end up not being able to do: evacuate. Though determined, they (Jahnni, two adult passengers, another airline employee and an unaccompanied minor) find themselves being pursued in the belly of the airport by possible terrorists while they search for a way out. They are forced to rely on each other as they are blocked at every turn. That is, until one of the passengers in the group reveals a BIG secret related to the previous use of the land that could provide them an escape.

From the beginning of 
Jahnni’s story, her crush on an off-duty FBI agent that she earlier checked in for his flight, induces *almost* uncontrolled daydreaming that she must overcome to stay focused, keep them all safe, and find help to get to safety. Just when the drama appears to finally be coming to an end, complete epic chaos with no way of escape soars into Jahnni’s life. Will Jahnni and the others survive? Available in print and e-book on Amazon.

The Colors of My Life~These stories and poems are reflections of the zany, humorous, and true situations that the author either fell into or created because of her very conversational way that she categorized information in her mind. The main consistency in her childhood was the familiar voice in her head which helped her reason and maneuver through the complexities of life. This created some funny life lessons along the way that will make you laugh, or sometimes bring a tear to your eye as you navigate the memories in her heart, and possibly find a familiar note of reasoning. When she had children of her own, she wrote poems to share with them her innermost appreciation of their beautiful lives and the love that burned in my soul. This collection brings her full circle to embrace the odd little girl that she was, which helped create the mother and grandmother that she has become. It is currently only available in e-book format on Amazon and also at BookBaby.

"I have been a closet writer for most of my life. When the characters in my head are fed up with lounging around like bored actors on a stage, they bang on my head to let them out. "Come on," they cry, "We are so bored waiting here! Give us some direction or at least tell people about us!" I have two other novels in the works so I will keep you posted at the various stages with preview snippets thrown in! My musings in this blog will no doubt include the experiences with my grandchildren who currently hold my heart in the palm of their hands. Hopefully, you will enjoy their points of view as much as I do."
