imgonline-com-ua-twotoone-hlOr1Q8y8Bn76.jpg

Sallie Weissinger is a native of New Orleans and was raised with a military family from the South. She has lived most of her life in the Bay Area and also in New Orleans.

A retired executive, she teaches Spanish and does medical interpreting for non-profit organizations in Central America and the Dominican Republic.

In her latest book, Yes, Again: (Mis)adventures of a Wishful Thinker, this laughter-through-tears memoir, Sallie Weissinger, a late-in-life widow, recounts the highs and lows of navigating the tricky online dating world of the 2000s.

Interwoven throughout her adventures in search of a new relationship are stories from her childhood as a military brat, her southern heritage, her various marriages, and the volunteer work in Central and South America that helped her keep moving forward through it all.

Nancy Wiegman has a master's degree in French linguistics from Indiana University and taught yoga and foreign languages at CSU Fresno and the College of Charleston before moving to Chico in 1990.
