Tales from a Judicial Diva

Judge Vanessa D. Gilmore and I are members of the same breakfast club. She's been involved for many years; I just joined three years ago. 
Because of her duties on the bench, I don't see her often, but when I do, I'm always delighted by her great sense of humor. 

Now she's sharing it with the public in her new book, "You Can't Make This Stuff Up: Tales from a Judicial Diva."
In this autobiographical collection of short stories, Vanessa gives us a glimpse of her life - on and off the bench.
A master storyteller, and a lover of all things funny, Vanessa often entertains her friends with tales of her life. 
Once she related a story about a criminal defendant who was flirting with her as she took his plea, and another who dressed as a king during his trial. 

Friends have long insisted that these stories could not be true. To which Vanessa always replies, "You can’t make this stuff up."
This book will leave you laughing and asking if life as a judge can really be this much fun.
