Sailing the Pacific

Jackie Weger has been writing romance novels off and on for thirty years.

In between books, she’s had the good fortune to travel to many interesting and exotic locales from London and Paris to Panama, Mexico and Costa Rica.

She sailed on a twenty-nine foot sloop in the Pacific, volunteered at a Sisters of  Mercy Mission in Colon, canoed on the Big East River in the wilds of Canada and lived part of a winter with trappers in the Louisiana swamps—collecting memories, friends and experiences—which oft times make appearances in her novels.

Until the innovation of ebooks and ereaders Jackie thought the greatest inventions of the Twentieth Century were fitted sheets and Velcro. Gifted with an Amazon Kindle last Christmas changed her  life.

“I’m thrilled with the opportunity to put my books on the virtual bookshelf and before a new reading audience. I hope readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoyed researching and writing them.”

    I just finished reading The House On Persimmon Road. I really enjoyed the humor and suspense. Lottie was quite a ghost .

  2. Jackie,
    I love your new web page!

  3. Janet Percy says:

    I read “The House on Persimmon Road” and came to the conclusion, everyone should have a “Lottie” ghost. Loved the book and how everything came together. Prompted me to order “On A Wing and A Prayer”. I’m hooked-I have to order them when they are free or low priced, but will recommend you to my friends.

    • Jackie Weger says:

      Janet! Oh, gosh you are an author’s dream. Thank you so much for your kind words. Finding Home, my newest release will be available in a Kindle Countdown Deal February 26-28, 2014. Do download it at it’s starting price of 99 cents. Thank you again for stopping by. I appreciate so much.

  4. Jackie, I love your website. Great job.

    Hi, Jackie!

    I’m very happy and excited to be participating in this hop. Also, I’m VERY glad that some of the books are available in print, as well as in Kindle editions. (I wish ALL of them were available in print.) That’s because I’m a diehard bibliophile! To me, printed books are SO special!

    Your novel, “Flaps Down”, is now on my Amazon contemporary romance wish list, as well as on my Goodreads TBR shelves. Of course, I’m referring to the paperback edition!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting on my March Book Frenzy post. I especially appreciate your compliment about my blog! Since my favorite color is blue, I decided to spread it all over the design! Lol. : )

    I read your book now called Down Flaps years ago and loved it. Just finished Finding Home and wrote a review. Then, checked out your website. Now I misstated in my review. I’ve read two of your great books.

    Keep up the good work. jean

    • Jackie Weger says:

      #Jean: Thank you! It is more than wonderful of you to take the time to write a reviews and also pop in here. I am so enjoying our ebook universe! When I wrote for Harlequin oud books has a shelf life between yogurt and ice cream–eight days on a bookshelf and done! Now, we can revise, add new content and our books stay on the virtual bookshelves. Dont be a stranger!

    I just finished reading ” Finding Home ” , and loved it. It made me more than a little bit homesick ( I am from the Mississippi gulf coast), but it also helped the homesickness, because your use of the language and what I call “Southernese” is exactly as I remember it to be. The way that you portray Southern the Southern way of life is also right on. Thanks for writing that lovely book.

    • Jackie Weger says:

      C.M. Triplett! Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to leave a note. I’m from Alabama and Bayou La Batre is one of my favorite small fishing villages. I know the best crabbing spots, the people are friendly and hard-working and always have time to chat. I spent a lot of time in Biloxi, too. I get homesick for it, too–especially gumbo and hushpuppies. Oh, Mercy! Hugs, Jackie

    Jackie, like you I am a bibliophile( and the word has nothing to do with being a preachers kid) as my cousin Besty so knowingly informed everyone one day. Like others here I have a need to read, but on a budget. I was so pleased to read The House on Persimmon Road! My grandmother recently passed away, with all her own teeth, at the age of 103. No nursing home, no cane, dressed in her favorite dress “washes like a hankie,” and ready to get her house in order so she could sit down to a good book. Your book brought back many pleasant memories. Like myself, we squirmed when a book got to graphic, finding it hard to believe you couldn’t imagine on your own where things were headed! I so wish I had discovered you two years ago my grand mere,when she was feeling fancy, would of loved this book & others you’ve written so much! But I will read them for her in case she’s betwixt and between!

    • Jackie Weger says:

      Noel Holley-Bell! I will treasure forever your comment on The House on Persimmon Road. I so hope your Grandmother is betwixt and between and sharing notes and recipes with Lottie! I’m storing away “washes like a hankie.” 103! That is amazing. When your grandmother was growing up no respectable Southern woman left home without gloves, a hat and her ‘hankie’. Thank you so much stopping by. Don’t be a stranger.
      Highest Regards,

      Jackie

  17. David Cruz says:

    Hello Jackie,
    I’m glad to see you are still writing. You have come a long way since Rosenberg,Tx.

    Now that we’re retired I will try to catch up on your books.

    David
    BTW I still have my copy of A Strong and Tender Thread.

    • Jackie Weger says:

      My Word! Hola! David Cruz and Rosenberg Bank. It ain’t there anymore. It was something else last time I drove though.
      Actually I took a hiatus from writing for a few years. Had to take care of the old folks and see them off into the wild blue yonder,
      among other life events. I did some traveling and went to University. That was hoot. I spent a number of years in Panama. Loved it.
      The UK and France, too. I am having so much fun as an independent author. It it an entirely new universe.
      The learning curve was stupendous, but these past few months I’ve managed to build a foundation to grow on.
      And you and your wife are retired! Congratulations, but I am never doing that stuff. Do, keep in touch! It was really
      nice to hear from you. Best, Jackie

  18. Good luck with the release of No Perfect Secret, Jackie! Thinking about you today and sending you sunshime and good vibes from Greece :)

  19. Linda says:

    I just finished reading House on Persimmon Road via my Kindle. I thoroughly enjoyed it and it left me wanting more. Maybe a sequel with a continuation of the lives of all of the interesting and fun characters? :)

  20. Karla says:

    I want to thank you for the good feelings and laugh out loud moments while reading House on Persimmon Road. I would love to hear more about these delightful characters and look forward to reading other books from you!

    • Jackie Weger says:

      Thank you, Karla. What a nice thing to say. Lottie is plaguing me to at least give her an epilogue. I may have to, if only to keep her from nagging me unmercifully.
      Best to you and yours…
      Jackie

  21. Susan Tarr says:

    I loved the unexpectedness of The House on Persimmon Road, the soft humor and family drama. Wonderful story. Wonderful introduction to this amazing author.

  22. Jeanne Montenegro says:

    Just finished ‘No Perfect Fate’. Now it’s 2 in the morning and I can’t stop yawning. Must tell you how much I enjoyed my late night read….especially your characters. Very refreshing. I really enjoyed your bio. Even though you hate writing them, it was almost as enjoyable as your story. Saw a lot of myself in it with the exception of my two kids who turned out far better than expected. You’re lucky you got fifteen minutes during your marriage. I think I averaged about ten. Anyway, thank you for a great story with great characters and without the same old same old descriptions of supposedly erotic sex. Will be looking forward to reading more.
    Jeanne

    • Jackie Weger says:

      Jeanne Montenegro! Gosh. Thank you so much for taking the time to post such a lovely comment about No Perfect Fate. I am smiling because you and I now have an inside joke to share. Your ten and my 15… But more than than that, it is wonderful to know there are women and readers who think like I do. Falling in love is grand, I wish I could do it every single week. I adore that adrenaline rush. I learned too late that the fine and lasting texture of a relationship is not woven in a bed. If only that was hot wired into our brains at birth! Again, you thank. So nice to meet you. Don’t be a stranger.
      Blessings to you and yours.
      Jackie Weger

  23. Libby says:

    it is now 2:20 AM and I just finished reading Persimmon Road. I was completely captivated by these delightful if not exasperating characters. Lottie is adorable and I do hope you will bring her back to the written page. Several months ago while visiting friends in south Louisiana, they showed me their old family home. I couldn’t help but picture this old, paint peeling, neglected home sitting under tall overhanging, moss-laden oak trees and surrounded by aged azaleas as I read your story. The only identifying fact you didn’t mention was the old rotten tire swing in front of the house. I do plan to look for more of your books. So enjoyed your writing.

    • Jackie Weger says:

      Golly! Thank you, Libby, for such kind words, always boon to an author. I am so appreciative that you took the time to write. I have to tell you, I loved writing The House on Persimmon Road. Lottie Roberts stole that book out from under me. She wrote herself into the story. I didn’t even know she was there until Justine parked her car on that dusty road next to the leaning mailbox. Sometimes magic happens. I love Louisiana, the bayous, the fishing villages off the beaten path, and all things Southern. It is in my bones. Again, thank you so much for taking the time to write.

      Best to you and yours,
      Jackie Weger
