“Believable characters with distinct personalities. Thought-provoking and snarky dialogue…”

Snip Weger head shot 2I suffer from a multiple personality disorder… As soon as I put my fingers on a keyboard those dang personalities get loose and get inside my books, and I’m stuck with them. They are crazy, eccentric, and mouthy. Some are funny, some are sad, but they all have one thing in common–all are like teenagers! They think they are entitled to be front and center on every dang page.  It is all I can do to keep them from making fools of themselves or me. Some are older than a century, some younger than five. The only time they leave me alone is when I go to Bingo or crabbing in a Matagorda estuary. One of my favorite characters is Phoebe Hawley. Haven’t heard of her? Read on, then grab her story absolutely FREE!

Celebrate Your Freedom To Read with Free and $0.99 Bestsellers!

jackie_weger-30_years-of_meWhat a difference thirty years makes!

See me at age Fifty and now at age Eighty. Yes, it’s looks, but I can tell you those thirty years have been grand. Kids grown up. Husband left. That was a man who had his hand Gorilla Glued to his wallet. Miserable old coot.

Joy overcame disgust. I checked off my bucket list: went to university; lived on an island; sailed in the Pacific; settled for a few years in a tiny jungle village. Traveled to the UK and took the Chunnel to Paris. Visited every Cathedral and museum in my path on two Continents…

Spring Fling with Free and Bargain Bestsellers!

Jackie Weger and Miss Flannery

You can’t beat your local community theater for inexpensive shows. A pair of my lady friends took me to see Thoroughly Modern Millie. The music was super, but for me, Miss Flannery stole the show with her quips and facial expressions which were wildly funny.

Similar to this great show, The House on Persimmon Road is still one of my all-time favorite books to write. The personalities of the characters surprised me no end. I hope you enjoy reading about Justine Hale and her zany family as much as I loved writing her story.

The Real Skinny on Artificial Intelligence

New Contraptions. Old Brain.

No, I wasn’t born under a rock, but I was born during the Depression which means I am not a Millennial. My kids aren’t even Millennials. What I am is O.L.D. and I’m trying to grasp artificial intelligence. An online dictionary says AI is a noun: the theory and development of computer systems able to perform tasks that normally require human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages. Also, AI can drive cars–which I’m not allowed to do, so that piqued my interest.

Why Don’t Men Listen? And Don’t Talk to me About Mars.

YES, I’ve read Men are from Mars, Women from Venus

But I don’t live with a Martian, although My Keeper acts like an alien too often.  Aliens don’t have ears, do they? You know what I’m talking about. Try explaining something to a man and his expression goes flat~unless he smirks with derision as in ‘I already know that’.  This happened: I’ve been ill for a while so I’m not allowed to drive. I asked my Keeper to take me to the UPS Store. He looked it up on Google so tells me he know right where to go. He drives through two shopping centers. We end up at Payless Shoes. No problem, he needs a new pair of sandals. I pull out my lovely new iPhone and ask Siri, ‘how far am I from the nearest UPS Store. Two shopping centers over right behind my bank. Yep. My Keeper wasn’t wrong. Blame Google maps. Bite my tongue!

Wrapping Up 2017~ an Unsettled Year

We are all fast-forwarding to 2018, but this year ain’t over yet.

My Money Jar–Kept on my Kitchen counter where it’s handy.

Telling you up front I’m older than God and younger than Death. I’m cruising eighty years old. My daughter gave me a book this week: Sub-titled: Live Strong, Fit, and Sexy Until You’re 80 and Beyond. I don’t want to be sexy at 80. What kind of fool notion is that? I just hope for ordinary functions…like waking up every day, snapping in my $7,000 dental implants–which by the way broke in half the first year. I glued ’em back together with Super Glue and they’ve worked fine for three years on.  I want a good, hot cup of coffee first thing in the morning until my eyes are open to see if the sun is shining or if it’s raining.  That’s a good start for me and you, too, whatever your age.
