 About the Book 

Choices is Judy Nelsons honest story of her life...before and after her acceptance of a lesbian lifestyle. Its a cause for which she works passionately, even at the risk of losing many old friends. In leaving her marriage to live with a woman, JudyMoreChoices is Judy Nelsons honest story of her life...before and after her acceptance of a lesbian lifestyle. Its a cause for which she works passionately, even at the risk of losing many old friends. In leaving her marriage to live with a woman, Judy knew that she would risk family and social ostracization, for the woman was Martina Navratilova, the worlds most famous female tennis player, and their tantalizing love affair became public knowledge as it made news around the world. She writes boldly of her relationships with Martina and with successful novelist Rita Mae Brown, but her story encompasses a far wider scope than these two. Choices is not an apology for leading a different lifestyle. It is an explanation and, perhaps, a justification of how this former Texas beauty queen walked away from a heterosexual life and became a lesbian. She married at twenty two. Her husband, a successful Texas physician, was involved in extramarital affairs early in their marriage, and to this day she maintains she is unsure of the reasons. Judys chance meeting with Martina led to a romantic attachment. After the breakup of the relationship with the tennis star, Judy contemplated a return to a heterosexual life. She even went so far as to begin a romance with a man, but an attempt to carry the liaison to physical intimacy fell short.
