Jackie Weger

Country: United States


Jackie Weger has been writing romance novels off and on for thirty years. She enjoys writing and insists meeting her characters for the first time is like meeting and making new friends. She has traveled to many exotic locales from the wilds of Northern Ontario to the deepest jungles in Panama and made friends along the way. Weger says, “I was raised poor, married poor, had five kids, so stayed poor. Any mother with a household full of kids knows what I mean. Just when you think you have spare change for a decent haircut or a wonderful vacation, one of those creatures needs a new pair of shoes, a prom dress, or wrecks the family car. Writing lifted me out of all that hustle and bustle. The kids are into their own lives now, I get to do my thing…reading and writing and destination travel when time, and money permits. I love going to new and strange places, meeting people, learning their customs, their foods, how they survive good times and bad. I lived part of one winter with trappers in the Louisiana Swamps, volunteered at a Sister’s of Mercy Mission in Colon, Panama--and had one of the most interesting conversations in my life with an old man and his dog as we sat on a bench waiting for a train in the Village of Versailles. I don't dress fancy, drive fancy, or live fancy. When I look around my life, I find my most precious possessions are the memories of all the wonderful people I've met thither and yon, and a few who live in the pages of my books.”
