This book tells of separate events that the author experienced during her lifetime. She had been encouraged by other published writers to write an autobiography. Several stories were written some time ago, but never published until now. A friend urged her to contact AuthorHouse. She did, and that is how her book has come to your attention. You may find that her style of writing is unique. You'll also notice there is very little continuity from one chapter, or sub-chapter, to the next. They vary in length from very short to quite long. A glance at the FORWARD or CONTENTS could inform you of the author's multi-faceted but very interesting life. This book was not based on a daily journal, but on vivid memories out of the past up to the present time. Some are joyful and some are humorous. Other events are nostalgic, and a few even traumatic. Jackie wants you to know that this book does not "tell all," but that is told is TRUE.
