About the Author

Sallie H. Weissinger is a native of New Orleans and was raised as a military brat. She has lived in Europe, Asia, and various US states, but these days she considers three cities "home" New Orleans; Berkeley, California; and Portland, Oregon. She worked for more than twenty years with the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, then became a Spanish interpreter and translator for various medical nonprofits. Today, her greatest passion is spending time with her luminous husband. She also enjoys volunteer work, singing, walking and hiking, speaking and teaching Spanish, reading and writing, hanging out with her rescue dogs, and dancing to rock and roll and Motown music in her living and dining rooms. This is her first book. She lives in Berkeley-Albany, CA.

Reviews

"A funny, touching, and ultimately uplifting story of a woman searching for love and purpose."

--Kirkus Reviews

"Sallie Weissinger celebrates her seventy-fifth birthday in Yes Again
by taking the reader on a tour of her big heart and where that heart
has taken her. This glorious story of a life lived in love is the
perfect read because it's hilarious, honest, and full of hope. We are
all lovers, or we wish we were, and Sallie shows us how: never give up,
occasionally give in, and don't stop believing. Brava!"

--Adriana Trigiani, best-selling author of Tony's Wife

"This memoir gives us the fascinating story of a woman's quest for a
meaningful life. It is by turns charming, hilarious, heartwarming, and
tragic, and yet, in the end, it delivers hope. I don't ask for more."

--Lynn Freed, award-winning novelist, short story writer, and essayist

"I have spent decades writing about how to live well. In her book,
Sallie Weissinger writes about something maybe even more important--how
to love well. And she does so spectacularly. Hers is the book for
everyone who has loved and lost, and wants to love again."

--Eugenia Killoran, coauthor of The Pritikin Edge: 10 Essential Ingredients for a Long and Delicious Life

"Linearity works for many things; however, in Sallie Weissinger's potent
book (and even more potent life) she shows us how tapping into grace
can be a tangible way of entering into mystery, meaning, and direction.
By recounting times of staggering loss, loneliness, self-doubt,
perseverance, and openness to the ineffable, Sallie demonstrates how the
journey of life can be a glorious pathway for those with a bit of
daring!"

--Bill Say, MA, life coach, Process Work Diplomate, and instructor at CIIS, JFK University, and the Wright Institute

"After reading Sallie's soulful book, I have to say this gifted writer
got the love she wanted the old-fashioned way . . . she earned it!"

--Lacy J. Dalton, singer and songwriter


"This glorious story of a life lived in love is the perfect read because it is hilarious, honest, and full of hope. Brava!"

--Adriana Trigiani, best-selling author of Tony's Wife
