Book Shows Readers Why in Life, Everyone is 'Just Wingin' It'

Jackie Klemme-Beisert wanted to share her experiences on parenting and all those crazy moments that have made her who she is today. It prompted her to write "Just Wingin' It: One Woman's Comical Collection of Musings, Reflections, and Observations on This Thing We Call Life" (published by Archway Publishing).

The book shares a collection of anecdotes and other stories based on Klemme-Beisert's life. It humorously reflects on the ups and downs of raising four children as well as how a crush on Leif Garrett transformed into a dream of becoming an actress. It also contemplates why an epiphany led to a pledge to dance on every Coyote Ugly bar in the world and how overcoming a long-held fear led her to drive into Mexico without a map, a phone or knowing a lick of Spanish.

Klemme-Beisert's other amusing stories include helpful hints for newlyweds, insight on why a bloodcurdling scream will summon a game warden quicker than anything and tips on why no one should ever put dishwashing liquid in a dishwasher or let a pet bird fly near a ceiling fan.

"This is an everyday account in the life of a parent," Klemme-Beisert says. "I write in the style of Erma Bombeck. Parlaying my life, and kids' moments into laughter."

By sharing her life experiences, Klemme-Beisert hopes readers will realize that not everyone is perfect. However, they have to take chances and take more time to really appreciate and laugh at their life's moments.
