I would rather write an obit than my bio, mostly because I'm one of the most boring souls you'll ever meet. I have been to interesting places and met interesting people, but none of it rubbed off on me. Some of those places and some of those people found their way into characters or settings in my romance novels which lends me about an inch of panache--on the table below the salt. With family or solo, I've traveled since I was about eleven. I spent years living abroad in Central America in little jungle villages absorbing the native culture and language. I spent months on off-islands and sailed in the Pacific with a friend until his sloop sank--not with us on it--thank goodness. I spent a New Year's in Montreal, a summer semester in the U.K ...more

“Hell is where I’m going. Crazy is where I’m at.”
Jackie Weger, Eye of the Beholder

“Phoebe didn’t know where all this was leading. That the girl was troubled was plain. Later she could worry on the child. Just now, getting settled was the main thing. She looked up at the ceiling. Lor, but having a roof above one’s head was a precious thing. From somewhere at the other end of the rambling old house, Gage Morgan called for his daughter.”

I've downloaded and look forward to reading The House on Persimmon Road.
Wishing you the very best!

Jackie Weger Like horror? There are not rafts of female horror writers who will grab you by the throat and have you holding your breath--except one. That's Billie Sue Mosiman. Mourning Mansion comes to mind. Just head over to Amazon, type in Billie Sue Mosiman--and snap up every title. But! Before you settle in on the sofa or your Lazy-Boy for a marathon read--pull the shades and lock the doors. I ain't kidding.

Jackie Weger Donna Fasano is tops on my list of favorite romance writers. This author never disappoints. I mean--never! Want to curl up with a warm and fuzzy heart-tugging HEA book--if it's got Donna Fasano's name on it--you're good for hours on end.


Jackie Weger Johnee Cherry is the new favorite writer on my list. Mercy! The utter raw talent this first time author displayed in a Home For Wayward Husbands blew me away.
