JUDY STEINBERG began her career in television production in the middle sixties. Her
specialty was musical variety, and she worked with many great performers, such as
Bob Hope, Dick Van Dyke, Debbie Reynolds, Andy Griffith, Don Knotts, John Davidson,
Steve Martin, Jerry Van Dyke and the Smothers Brothers, where she stayed for the last
two years of their CBS series. She was married to comedian David Steinberg for 25
years, during which time she worked on many of his film, television and performing
engagements. Judy was one of two dozen people who sang with John Lennon, on
the recording of Give Peace A Chance, which has become the world's anthem for peace.
More recently, Judy co-wrote The Ropes and Fabulous After Fifty and Sexy At Sixty,
published by Dutton. She has done many radio and television interviews, including The
Today Show and Good Morning America. Judy has been a featured guest speaker at
Women's Expos and other women's events across the country. She maintains an ongoing
conversation with the older woman through her website, www.judysteinberg.com, where she
posts a blog relating to older women's issues and is a contributor at other websites like
Vibrant Nation, devoted to the conversation about older women.
Judy is currently working on two more books. One is called The Cougar Chronicles, which
is a historical examination of famous successful older women and their younger lovers. See
Judy's website where she answers the question "What Is A Cougar?". The other book is
called "Sexy At Seventy", a collection of men and women in their seventies who have figured it out.
In addition to her fundraising and support commitments to Gilda's Club and Dezart Performs,
Judy is the former President of the Palm Springs Women's Press Club. She was recently
inducted into Pen Women of America, a national organization of writers and artists. She is an
active member of Palm Springs Women in Film & Television, and the Palm Springs Writers Guild. Judy holds the Ms. Senior America 2010 title for San Diego County. She lives in Palm Desert, California, where she falls asleep to the sound of her skin crackling in the heat and dryness.
