Meet JL LeGerrette

JL LeGerrette’s first publication is a small biographical collection of short stories and poems titled The Colors of My Life. It’s a laugh-out-loud funny recollection that might possibly bring a tear to your eye as well. You can also read about this particular, very important journey at her blog site-

She is also the author of the thriller titled You’re Clear. With a background as an Airline Customer 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 life” to spin out her fun tale. “There are few exceptions of careers where people allow you to come into their small bubble and remain,” she shares when speaking of her career as a hairdresser. “You learn to ‘feel’ what people are ‘thinking’.”

Her latest work is a small children’s book titled Our Days. This book is based on a poem written by JL LeGerrette when her children were small. It hints at the exhausting daily activities that come with raising children while merging with the unconditional love a parent has for them. It’s about the beautiful memories that are being created during those wonderful years.

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.

Nighthawk Crossing

Nighthawk Crossing - ASIN B00CKWTUPC

The story centers on people, drugs and weapons smuggling and the ruthlessness of a well-entrenched criminal organization. The smugglers are mainly Native American Indians and motorcycle gang members led by a chieftain with a Navy SEAL background. Although the smuggling is within the aegis of the Border Patrol and various ICE sub-agencies, the FBI steps in when two Border Patrol agents are killed by smugglers. The pursuit of the killers not only uncovers drug and gun distribution rigs in America but also unveils a major plot to supply a secret weapon to the Taliban and Al Qaida and sub plots of the State Department, Canadian spy agencies, NATO and the CIA. The story transports the reader from the Okanagan Canada-U.S.A. border region to England, Kyrgyzstan and the Maldives. Action scenes include: murder of two Border Patrol Special Agents; ambush and murder of Korean human trafficking gang members; a winter ambush and destruction of two FBI helicopters while attempting to intercept a smuggling operation; a gun battle between smuggler and FBI helicopters; and a Navy SEAL underwater approach assault on an armory and meth lab on a remote island in the Maldives.

The story and the persona are complete fiction but ideas have been gleaned and exaggerated from some “life experiences and characterizations” and events. For example, trans border drug smuggling by helicopter in the Okanagan is well known and some aircraft have been confiscated. In another example, the Taliban and Al Qaida used a resort in the Maldives for conferences when your author was working in the Maldives. Some towns have been fictionalized but other well-known landmarks are retained.

The Chieftain is portrayed as a sociopathic “anti-hero” – well respected in his environmental activities and leadership roles with no remorse for killing adversaries. He is not “killed off” in the story – although much of his well-ordered world is lost – as your author has at least three more episodes in mind.
